    • Every student deserves the opportunity to reach his or her potential and learn in an environment that promotes health, environmental stewardship and community.
    • Everyone has a stake in the health and environment of this and future generations.
    • Every person will benefit from taking action.
    • The purpose of the day is to foster improvements, celebrate successes, and create projects that make indoor and outdoor environments in schools the best they can be.
    • As a founding partner in Healthy Schools Day in Canada, the Children’s Health & Environment Partnership of Manitoba profiled
    • Ecole Robert H. Smith
    • for the inaugural year and celebrated student, parent and faculty efforts in improving the quality of the environment inside and outside of their school.
    • This year…
    • The Children’s Health & Environment Partnership of Manitoba has launched a new initiative
    • Share a Story, Start a Project
    • Between April 26 and May 24, 2010
    • Schools in Manitoba are invited
    • to share a story
    • telling us how they have demonstrated a commitment to protecting the health of students, their community and the planet.
