​​​Ophea is congratulating more than 100 schools who received its Healthy Schools Certification this year.

A total of 107 schools across Ontario completed the six-step Healthy Schools Process, making their school community a healthier place and receiving gold, silver, or bronze certification. Ophea was impressed with the innovative and exciting activities these schools have led and the strong emphasis on student engagement and community partnerships that have been fostered and will continue to flourish.

An additional six schools completed the six-step Healthy Schools Process, and while they did not receive enough points to be certified, they still contributed to their school community and are considered Healthy Schools Certification participants.
