School Health - Information for Parents

Parents play an important role in the positive development of their children. Involvement in schools is a key part of the child’s learning success.

NOTICE: The "healthy start to schools" examples found in this area of our website were developed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and may not be suitable in the current environment. Please remember the need for physical distancing, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces and toys, when planning activities for children. Learn more →


When parents are engaged in their child’s learning: 

  • Students do better in school
  • Parents find it easier to help their child learn.
  • Teachers and principals are better supported
  • Positive relationships develop between parents, children and school staff
