The board of trustees believes that students and staff who are physically and mentally well are better able to achieve the goals of education. The Board of Trustees is committed to student and staff wellness in the areas of physical well-being and mental health.

The board acknowledges that only by working in partnership with students, staff, parents, community members, organizations and government can we promote and foster lifelong habits that support wellness. 

The board is committed to providing students and staff with the supports to learn about, create and maintain a culture of wellness.
