Managing School Health

School connectedness is about creating a school community where everyone feels cared for - safe, seen, heard, supported and significant. The focus is building strong positive relationships between students, staff, families and the larger community.

Join in the opportunities within your school or district to foster healthy physical, mental, social and intellectual development. The Comprehensive School Health Framework is internationally recognized. It highlights that physical, social and emotional wellbeing are interconnected to student learning.  

Promote health through education, policies, community partnerships and the surrounding school environment. Find out more:
