Building Healthy Communities

We have many different programs, partnerships and strategies to support our schools in creating healthy communities:

  • Implementing healthy school policies
  • Creating supportive social and physical environments
    • Schools use a variety of approaches and strategies to create safe and caring schools that best suit their communities. They are also supported by a variety of system resources.
  • Teaching students about health and wellness
    • Health and life skills are included in Alberta's Programs of Study, which identify what students are expected to learn and do in all subjects and grades from kindergarten to Grade 12.
  • Developing strong partnerships and services with our communities
    • Our students and schools health and wellness needs are supported by many organizations and generous donors who partner with us.
