Health and quality learning are interdependent. Educational research supports this connection and acknowledges that as a division, we have a role in creating and supporting healthy school communities as foundations for optimal learning. Westwind School Division is committed to a comprehensive school health approach that fosters lifelong wellness practices.
Westwind has recently formed a division wellness committee made up of wellness champions from our schools, with a mission to draw attention to the importance of wellness for all of our staff, students and Westwind families. This committee will meet regularly throughout the school year and support and promote monthly wellness themes. They will also focus on promoting wellness-focused school culture, providing positive leadership that models wellness and share important wellness resources with staff.
We look forward to working with our wellness committee over the next year to help support healthy school communities!
