We love ideas – always have, always will. Need a quick brainstorm?
We’re your people.
One of the best parts of our role as Health
Promotion Facilitators is that we get to gather ideas about healthy schools,
share them with partners, and help bring them to life in schools and school
We find ideas in all kinds of places – articles, toolkits,
workshops, conversations, stories, and even on social media. We work across
health and education to weigh them against published science, traditional
wisdom, and real-world experience. We anchor them in comprehensive
school health so they can roll out in a way that is coordinated, effective,
Fueled by ideas, we’ve learned that school health champions
do remarkable things. Your energy, passion, enthusiasm and commitment propel
ideas to new heights – even in tough times. Last year, we were awed and
inspired as you moved learning outdoors, cultivated online relationships, and
redesigned recess. We loved your ideas for walking field trips, virtual family
nights, and flexible school food programs. Thank you for being there, and for helping
students to stay well.
As we look to a new school year with hope, what will you do
with an idea? If you’re looking for a creative spark, check out schools.healthiertogether.ca, our
new digital hub for healthy schools. Use it to explore evidence-based ideas and
information, and connect with resources, training, and passionate people who
can help. Start an idea, grow an idea, or share an idea – there’s something
here for you.
Welcome back, HPEC teachers! We can’t wait to connect with you.
