Students in Grades 9-12 at Burnaby Mountain Secondary will be participating in the COMPASS Study on February 20th. We hope that our participation in this study will provide us with some data that will help guide us as we continue work on our Healthy Schools Goal. This will involve completing a 45 minute questionnaire about healthy eating, physical activity, sedentary behaviour, smoking, alcohol and drug-use, mental health and bullying. Please read the attached document for more information about the study.
