Information for Schools

We want to help you keep your school healthy. As an administrator and/or educator you are in a position to lead and support health and well-being initiatives within your school community. Students, parents or caregivers, and community partners also play an important role. Here, we offer information to support you.

Find out about:

  • The programs and services we offer for schools
  • Curriculum, teaching and learning supports on a range of health topics
  • Our Healthy Schools Team – and how we can work with you to enhance the physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual health of your school community.
