Want to make a difference at your school? Do you want your voice heard? Do you want to be a part of making your school a healthier place?
Being part of a Healthy Schools Committee might be just what you are looking for. Speak to your school council representatives, teachers or Principal to find out if a Healthy Schools Committee already exists in your school. If not, talk to your school Principal to discuss how you can start one or call the health unit at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 to speak to a Healthy Schools public health nurse in your area about how to get started. Being part of a Healthy School Committee can help you and your friend’s voices be heard – you can inform your school about what changes or issues you want to see addressed at your school.
