Durham District School Board
Ignite Learning

Safe Schools in the Durham District School Board support students when they make healthy choices. The Physical Education and Health program also provides curricular expectations for developing the living skills that help students gain a better understanding of who they are and help them connect positively and productively with the larger world. The integration of the living skills, with the other components of the Physical Education and Health curriculum from Grade 1 to Grade 12, give students an opportunity to develop, practice, and refine these important skills as they mature.
