Health Promoting School Grants from PHE Canada
Given the clear link between health and education, many school authorities are developing and implementing policy regarding the health and wellbeing of their students and staff. If your school believes in the philosophy of HPS and would value from implementing HPS initiatives, PHE Canada may support your efforts with a funding grant.
We challenge your school to come up with a project idea that will channel physical activity, healthy eating, and overall healthy living from schools to home life, and the school community. Your project should build awareness of and inspire students, families and community members to find solutions to the barriers to physical activity, healthy eating and healthy lifestyle choices.
