POWER of 10 Workshop – Grade 10 Female Students

Thursday Sept 11

Each workshop should bring out a unique aspect of these topics so that by the end of the day the girls can clearly see the purpose and usefulness of the experiences they had.

Is your child protected?

Ontario’s Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) requires that parents of children attending primary or secondary school provide their local health unit with proof of their child’s immunization record against designated diseases. As of July 1, 2014 Meningitis (Meningococcal), Whooping Cough (Pertussis), and Chicken Pox (Varicella) have been added to the list of designated diseases and are now required immunizations for school attendance.

Children and adolescents who have received all recommended vaccines as per the Ontario schedule will not require any further immunizations. Changes were made to improve the health and safety of school children as these diseases can easily spread in schools. For more information phone your local Northwestern Health Unit office:
