The Second Annual National HEALTHY SCHOOLS DAY IN CANADA is Monday, April 26, 2010

What would make a difference in your school or schools?

Do you have an event to add to the Healthy Schools Day Project Registry?

Healthy classroom and school building environments is the focus. Use less toxic cleaning materials, building materials, and classroom materials. Use safe alternatives for pest control. Improve Indoor Air Quality. Stop bus and car idling. Control and remove indoor mould growth. What does your school need? Your project can be big or small – It can just say “Thanks” when things are going well!
