As part of the Student Health Initiative of Healthy Tasmania, $2 million of funding is being provided over four years for schools. This funding enables them to partner with community organisations to promote broad change and meet longer-term health and wellbeing needs of the school community.
Funds have been allocated to 52 Tasmanian schools so far to support projects. These focus on nutrition, food and agriculture, physical activity, drug education and emotional health and wellbeing. A fourth round of
funding is currently underway for projects to be delivered in 2020.
A film of highlights from some of the successful school projects was recently shown at the Healthy Tasmania Community Forum. You can see it above via the DHHS YouTube channel.
