Promoting physical, mental, social and spiritual health!

The Ontario Healthy Schools Coalition is an Ontario-wide, broad-based coalition, with members from public health units, school boards, hospitals, mental health agencies, universities, health-related organizations, education-related organizations, and parent and student organizations, working to promote healthy schools so students can achieve academic success.

 The Ontario Healthy Schools Coalition defines a “Healthy School” as one that “promotes the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of the whole school community.”

A Healthy School, “is one that constantly strengthens its capacity as a healthy setting for living, learning and working” (as is a “Health Promoting School” according to the World Health Organization international concept). Healthy students are better learners (Basch, 2011)
