The goal of the School Health Team is to work together alongside school boards and schools to achieve optimal health and wellbeing for school aged children and youth. The link between health and education, provides an ideal setting for children and youth to learn and to develop healthy habits. Healthy students are better prepared to learn, and education is a key determinant of health.


The school teams consist of:


  • public health nurses
  • a dietitian
  • dental hygienists and educators
  • registered practical nurses
  • a youth engagement coordinator
  • support staff


A healthy start for school
