This policy applies to all schools in Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board.
Healthy Students Healthy Schools is a CBVRSB initiative which aims to create a school environment that supports children, youth and the larger school community in leading healthy change.
The Healthy Students Healthy Schools initiative, recognizing the health crisis around student health and obesity will see policies and guidelines developed, curriculum enhanced and programs expanded to support the creation of a healthy school environment.
This initiative attempts to reach students by promoting health within and beyond the classroom. HSHS is designed to promote the physical, emotional and social health and wellness of students, their families, school staff, and school communities. It is based on the belief that health is important to learning and that schools are uniquely positioned to influence healthy child, youth, and family development. The mission is to create school environments that enhance the healthy development of children and their families by working in partnership with community providers and resources.
