The Louise Arbour Healthy Schools team, called the Eagles Health Association (EHA) has been selected as the February feature in the OPHEA (Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) Blog. The EHA consists of students, teachers, an administrator, parents, a public health nurse, and community representative from the City of Brampton Parks and Recreation.
The OPHEA Healthy Schools certification program consists of 6 steps. Team members identify needs and assets, define a priority health topic, construct and administer an action plan, and then wrap up with a celebration and reflection. Schools can be awarded Bronze, Silver, or Gold rating by OPHEA.
