Project Description

Bedford South School is celebrating Healthy Schools Day with an awareness campaign.  The following text was published in the school newsletter to parents on Wednesday April 14, 2010, and students will announce the special day in the morning announcements of April 26, 2010.
“Monday, April 26, is Healthy Schools Day in Canada – Journée des écoles saines du Canada. It is an important day because school buildings can affect the health and learning ability of students.   It is an extra special day in Nova Scotia because this province has led the way in Canada.  For nearly twenty years, we have been improving our schools’ health – making our schools the best they can  be.  That means everyone in this building has been better off without even knowing it. Our school board chooses less toxic cleaning materials so we don’t breathe in toxic chemicals. Also, Scent-Smart programs are in place across Nova Scotia in hospitals, offices and most schools.

Healthy Schools Day organizers are pleased to say that other parts of North America are catching up! Now, the important part is to keep our schools healthy. So let’s celebrate Healthy Schools Day at Bedford South with schools right across Canada.

“Leave your scents at home on Monday and every day for a better, healthier school.”
