Peel Public Health’s healthy schools approach – comprehensive school health – is about building and supporting school communities for the benefit of the students themselves.

This report features some of the many successes of this approach in Peel schools during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 school years. You’ll read about:

  • a Child and Youth Worker at a Caledon high school who has spent five years growing a small, one-day health fair into a large, student-directed wellness week;
  • the power of parental involvement and the ways it has helped a small Malton elementary school beat the odds;
  • the passion and commitment of entire communities that are committed to giving kids better options and better futures;
  • and much more.

In all of the featured communities, you’ll find caring, connected adults – teachers, administrators, parents and guardians, community agencies, private businesses and concerned citizens – who are committed to the growth, development and nurturing of our children.

It really does take a village to raise a child.
