Regular Registration Deadline FAST Approaching
Healthy Schools – Healthy Children – Healthy Communities
The Healthy School Communities National Forum will provide the tools, evidence and resources to help you make healthy schools a priority goal in your community. Delegates can expect:
- Dynamic presentations offering the latest in school health research, evaluation and emerging trends;
- Interactive workshops, learning and mentoring sessions on successful policy and program initiatives;
- Brainstorming sessions that allow delegates to collaborate on strategic activities for the continued growth of healthy school communities;
- Opportunities to broaden your network, stimulate action and strengthen a National community of practice.
It takes a community to create the healthy environment children require to be successful learners. Join us November 2 and 3 to experience a national community of practice committed to improving student achievement, health and well-being.
Creating an environment that supports healthy choices among its members requires a collaborative team approach. That’s why we are offering a group rate when you register a healthy school community team of four or more. Contact Sharon@phecanada.ca directly for more details.
