Algoma Public Health
A Healthy/Well-Being School is continuously working to create a healthy and supportive environment for students, staff, parents and community members. Health messages taught in the classroom are reinforced throughout the entire school environment, giving students many opportunities to practice healthy behaviours.
Creating a Healthy/Well-Being School requires involvement from the entire school community. An effective way to work together is to establish a Healthy/Well-Being School Committee.
There is a public health representative assigned to each school in the Algoma District. Please contact Algoma Public Health to speak with your representative today.
Health and learning are closely linked. For this reason, the Ministry of Education has developed the Foundations for a Healthy School to help guide health promotion in schools.
