Health & Physical Education Curriculum

The Ontario Ministry of Education released its revised Health & Physical Education curriculum for students in Grades 1 to 12 during the 2015-2016 school year. The updated curriculum reflects health, safety and well-being realities faced by today's students, as well as teaching on healthy relationships, consent, mental health and online safety.

The new curriculum supports students to develop the skills and knowledge to: understand themselves and others; think critically, and make and promote healthy choices; develop and maintain healthy relationships; be safe, physically and emotionally; and be physically active for life and thrive.

Ninety per cent of this updated curriculum focuses on the area of healthy living for our students. Ensuring overall student well being, and promoting healthy nutrition education, and physical literacy and activity, have long been priorities of the Board, and are key goals within its strategic plan. To help parents understand the changes and participate in what will be taught to their children, the Ministry developed several resources including an outline of the new curriculum, guides on the human development and sexual health part of the curriculum, and quick reference sheets about healthy relationships and consent as well as online safety, including the risks of sexting.

Fentanyl Alert

The Limestone District School Board is working with KFL&A Public Health to alert students, parents and staff about the confirmation of the illicit (non-prescription) fentanyl in our area, which can result in serious risk of harm or injury, or death. Fentanyl is being pressed and manufactured to look identical to most prescription medications such as oxycontin and percocet. Getting the drugs from a dealer, friend or online is very risky and life-threatening due to possible fentanyl contamination. If you have any questions, please contact KFL&A Public Health at 613-549-1232 ext. 1102 or by email .
