Comprehensive School Health
School Community Health Education Partnership (SCHEP) is a partnership supported by WRPS, Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Wetaskiwin Boys & Girls Club. SCHEP is based on the foundation of the Comprehensive School Health model that promotes healthy lifestyle in schools and community. Each school has a designated School Health Champion who plays a vital leadership roll in healthy living education and promotion.
Comprehensive School Health is a long term, whole school approach involving multiple stakeholders who promote and support healthy living through: Integrated services, coordination, high yield instructional strategies and family, school, and community partnerships.
Schools have made excellent progress in building skills and knowledge in the areas of Healthy Eating, Active Living and Student Leadership.
