The Healthy Schools Awards Ceremony was held yesterday [June 10] at the Bermuda Society of Arts at City Hall, with Prospect Primary being named first place among 23 public and private primary, middle, and senior schools that were assessed as part of the program.

Second place was claimed by Mount Saint Agnes Academy, while the Berkeley Institute claimed third place and West End Primary was recognized as the most improved school.

The Healthy Schools Awards recognizes schools that consistently promote heath to their students and staff. A committee comprised of Department of Health staff and community health partners reviewed the extent to which schools consistently implemented eight aspects or categories of health to include their compliance to school health policies and Bermuda Laws, and determined the winners.

Awards are given to the first, second, and third place winner, the most improved school, along with eight individual and organization category winners, 19 special school and individual recipients, and three community health partners who have complied with the school health policies, promoted health, and supported schools and Healthy Schools.
