Ottawa Public Health is provincially mandated through legislation to work as partners with school principals, teachers and school board personnel to support the health and well-being of students and their families. Your assigned School Health Nurse will consult and collaborate with your school and community partners to be your liaison to accessing public health programs and services, provide knowledge and skills, in addition to supporting the delivery of the Ontario Ministry of Education Health and Physical Education Curricula.

Health and education are interdependent. The school’s public health nurse is a valued partner in helping to create a healthy school.
