Promoting Well-Being at School: Ontario Supports Program to Encourage Children and Youth to Get More Daily Physical Activity (news release)

ACTIVE AT SCHOOL will be working with Ontario and Ophea to help implement 60 minutes of physical activity for kids connected to the school day.

Meeting this goal of 60 minutes of physical activity a day is part of the government’s renewed focus on student well-being, including healthy eating, physical activity, a supportive school climate, and mental health investment in our schools.


Foundations for a healthy school

The Foundations for a Healthy School resource has been updated to support the integration of healthy schools policies, programs and initiatives into school and school board planning and implementation processes. The resource now better aligns with the components of the K–12 School Effectiveness Framework (K–12 SEF) by including the following five interconnected areas:

  1. Curriculum, Teaching & Learning
  2. School & Classroom Leadership
  3. Student Engagement
  4. Social & Physical Environments
  5. Home, School & Community Partnerships
