Healthy Schools

Health and education go hand in hand; research shows that healthy children are able to learn better at school and that education is a key determinant of health. A healthy school provides a positive environment where children can be healthy and learn at their best. It involves the entire school community, including educators, students, parents and community partners. Durham Region Health Department works with school communities to create healthy schools using the Ministry of Education’s Foundations for a Healthy School.
