Ophea’s Healthy Schools Certification
Make your school a healthy place!
September 1st marked the launch of Ophea’s Healthy Schools Certification for the 2015/16 school year! Registration is now open with only 250 spots available on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to register is September 18th by 5pm or until all spots are filled.
Ophea’s Healthy Schools (HS) Certification recognizes and celebrates school communities for promoting and enhancing the health and well-being of students, school staff and the broader community.
Ophea’s HS Certification is based on the 6-Step Healthy Schools Process in alignment with the Foundations for a Healthy School. This process guides a school community through planning and the implementation of a range of activities for a selected priority health topic. The process is annual, repeating each school year, and flexible for all communities across Ontario to sustain year over year.
By completing the 6-Step Healthy Schools Process over the course of the school year, registered schools will earn points and can apply to be certified in April as a Gold, Silver, or Bronze level Healthy School.
