Action Schools! BC Action Planning
Learn how action planning can enhance your school and school community

Action planning is a key way to purposefully enhance your school and school community in the areas of physical activity and healthy eating with connections to mental well-being and health literacy. Learn how you can easily access Action Schools! BC resources to support your school and school community.

Action Planning

An action plan is a road map towards a healthier school and healthier students. A short planning process can help educators make the most of their time and resources by ensuring discussion about a shared vision for the future, and agreement on the areas of health promotion that could be improved upon at your school and school community. Completing an action plan helps you build a shared understanding of health priorities, brainstorm actions that could be taken, choose a path forward, and evaluate progress over time.

The role of Action Schools! BC is to support your school and school community in achieving your goals and implementing your healthy living action plan. Based on the goals and actions you brainstorm, we will match you with the resources required to build capacity in those areas and to successfully achieve your goals. Together, we can take action across interrelated learning environments to encourage student engagement and health.

Action Schools! BC helps to start the conversation and provides on-going support in the form of:

  • Action Schools! BC physical activity and/or healthy eating workshops
  • Hands-on physical literacy and/or food literacy mentoring for classroom educators
  • Customized equipment grants
  • Downloadable resources including instructional examples and activities aligned with the new BC curriculum
  • Connections with community organizations and resources in your community
