Health & Well Being

The Halton District School Board and Nelson High School believes that healthy children and youth are better learners. 

This makes it important to create conditions at school that lead to good health and enhanced learning.  Healthy schools have learning environments where children and youth are supported by their school communities, enabling them to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Nelson's Well-Being Team 

We are committed to developing a program for all our students so that they can have a positive sense of well-being – the sense of self, identity, and belonging in the world that will help them to learn, grow and thrive. 

Our goal at Nelson is for all of our students to become active members of our Nelson community, and able to bring about positive change so that they can become healthy, active and engaged citizens.
