School Health 

A healthy school environment is essential for student success. Healthy students are better learners!  (Health Canada)

The heathy school approach is where the whole school community comes together to share ideas, plan, and take action to help kids lead healthy and active lives (OPHEA, 2015). This approach is based on the Ministry of Education's Foundations for a Healthy School, which consists of five areas of comprehensive school health.

Utilizing this healthy schools approach, Brant County Health Unit's healthy schools team works with the whole school community - administration, teachers, students, parents and various community agencies - to support the health and wellbeing of students and staff.
