Healthy Kids Philosophy

Nutritional Health

  • We believe healthy children have the greatest opportunity to achieve their academic potential.
  • We promote opportunities within the school with respect to making healthy nutritional choices as defined by the Canada Food Guide.
  • We strive to provide foods of high nutritional value while making allowances for celebratory or special even treats.

Physical Activity

  • We believe physical activity is vital to the healthy growth and development of children.
  • We emphasize activities for enjoyment, for promoting fair play and for personal health.
  • We provide opportunities for students to develop knowledge, skills and positive attitudes necessary to lead active healthy lifestyles.

Safe and Caring environment

  • We teach positive social behaviours and reinforce the use of these skills in and around the community.
  • We assist students with the ability to express thoughts and feelings constructively in order to build relationships and manage conflict.
  • We encourage students to show respect for others and learn how to work together in order to become responsible citizens.
