Some ideas for possible projects

  • Establish an HPS committee at your school who hosts various initiatives and builds awareness of HPS throughout the year
  • Have students, parents and staff commit to a physical activity target and all work toward that goal over the course of the school year
  • Partner with a neighboring school to have students and parents share responsibility of a communal vegetable garden
  • Establish a mental health action plan team made up of students and staff to encourage positive mental health
  • Partner with a local grocery store to form a breakfast program and raise awareness about nutrition and the importance of eating breakfast
  • Have older students engage with younger students to help them make positive choices
  • Partner with a local recreation facility to allow students to access the facility at a reduced cost

Post your projects to the PHE Canada Promising Practices Database to share your initiatives with others across Canada!
