Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyles
At the Regina Catholic School Division, we believe that health and education are interdependent. By addressing school community health, we can improve the educational outcomes of our students.
To this end, we have developed an Administrative Application (9512) to promote nutrition and healthy lifestyles in all of our schools. In the words of the application:
"The Regina Catholic School Division recognizes that schools have a responsibility to all students to foster knowledge, attitudes and practices that promote proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles. We are committed to supporting and modelling healthy lifestyles and as such, believe in the promotion and offering of nutritious food options in our schools. In addition, physical activity also plays a role in the development of healthy lifestyle habits that contributes to students' wellness and achievement."
This application states that our Division seeks to provide guidance and assistance to our schools as they can promote, model, and educate students about healthy living. We seek to:
Educate – ensure that the outcomes from the Saskatchewan Curricula related to nutrition are being met by all students
Promote – a culture of wellbeing which includes daily physical activity and components of the Comprehensive School Community Health
Model – school staff are positive role models who promote healthy eating within the school environment
In an effort to work together and support our schools as they promote health in wellness, throughout the school year, we will regularly post resources and information pertaining to healthy living. These resources can be accessed below.
