Bloc Texte

Since 2017, the Tchin-tchin Challenge allows the celebration of water during the third week of March on the occasion of Canada Water Week and World Water Day.

The Tchin-tchin Challenge is an awareness raising activity that encourages elementary school students to drink water during school lunches. It aims to promote water as the best drink for hydration and caring for one’s health, while having fun at the same time.

From March 21th to 25th, 2022, let's all raise our glasses and water bottles to toast to healthy hydration!

The tools and activities of the Tchin-tchin Challenge can be downloaded at any time in the Download your tools section. Additional tools to promote water consumption at school are also available here

Check out the Participant's section to see the schools that have registered, stay tuned for prizes and access quick information sessions to answer your questions.

Encourage parents to make water the preferred drink at home!

Did you know that students are more likely to adopt healthy lifestyles when their parents are involved?

Before the Challenge:

  • hand out or send letters to parents and provide the tool Ideas For Drinking More Water;
    offer the possibility to the Parent Participation Organization (PPO) to plan an activity on water, to contribute in planned activities or to encourage the use of water fountains;
    remind parents to put water bottles in their child's lunch box to participate in the Challenge.

 

During the Challenge:

  • Encourage parents (via e-mail, discussion, social networks of the school, etc.) to also participate in the
    Tchin-tchin as a family, with water, during mealtimes and have them consult the I'm thirsty for health! Campaign
    tools, designed especially for them, at thirstyforhealth.ca/home.
