School Health

Last Edited/Reviewed: September 14, 2022

The Peterborough Public Health School Health Team is a multidisciplinary team who work with schools, school boards and community agencies to protect and promote healthy schools based on the Ministry of Education’s Foundations for a Healthy School Framework and the Ministry of Health’s Ontario Public Health Standards.

The link between education and health is clear.  Healthy children learn better and education helps children to be healthier.
