Priority Health Topics

During Healthy Schools Certification, schools will be required to select one priority health topic to focus on during that school year. The six health topic options are from the Ministry’s Foundations for a Healthy School resource.

The priority health topic should be selected in a collaborative way with staff, students, and the broader community and should reflect the health needs of the school community for that given year. The priority health topic should also take into consideration what the school community already has (its assets).

To help you select a health topic and to plan activities and strategies to promote that topic we have information on each of the six health topics:
