Health & Physical Education Updates
In August 2018, the Ontario Ministry of Education released a Health and Physical Education (HPE) Curriculum on an interim basis and committed to a process of public consultation.
In August 2019, a revised Health and Physical Education Curriculum was released.
This revised curriculum includes much of the content first introduced in 2015. The curriculum continues to address a number of important topics including mental health, online safety and the risks of sexting, respect for self and consent within healthy relationships. The revised curriculum will be implemented in the 2019-2020 school year.
