Curriculum Resources

Public Health supports schools to improve the health and well-being of students and staff, both in the classroom and within the school community. Our health experts can:

  • Provide information and recommend resources to support teachers with the Health and Physical Education (H&PE) curriculum
  • Consult with teachers and school staff on school health initiatives

For questions about H&PE curriculum topics, resources and health initiatives at your school call our School Health Curriculum Resource Line at 1-800-265-7293 ext. 4111 or email schoolhealth@wdgpublichealth.ca.

Our recommended resources, lesson plans and tools align with the 2015 Ontario H&PE curriculum, and are available for the following curriculum expectations and topics:
