What is Healthy Schools
Healthy Schools BC, a key initiative of the Healthy Families BC
(HFBC) strategy, builds the capacity of the health and education
sectors to effectively implement healthy schools initiatives
using a Comprehensive School Health approach. Strengthened
health-education partnerships, tools for healthy school assessment
and planning, and the coordination of existing school-based healthy
living programs and resources combine to support improvements in
students' health and learning.
Healthy Schools BC involves a partnership between the ministries
of Health and Education, DASH BC, health authorities, education
partners, and other key stakeholders.
