Health & Physical Education Resources


In February, 2015, the Ontario Ministry of Education released revisions to the Health & Physical Education (HPE) Curriculum, which will be taught in classrooms across Ontario, beginning in September, 2015. The revised HPE curriculum, last updated in 1998, contains new material related to a number of issues, including mental health, online safety and the risks of sexting, respect for self and consent within healthy relationships, and respect for diversity.
This booklet and the accompanying resources will explain how the expectations of the revised HPE curriculum will be delivered as part of the family life curriculum offered in Catholic schools.
