We are educators who provide a strong voice to lobby, advocate and support the development and delivery of quality curriculum in Health and Physical Education.
The Ontario Association for the Support of Physical Health and Educators, (OASPHE), is a provincial subject association comprised of teachers and instructional leaders in Boards of Education and students and leaders in Faculties of Education responsible for Health and Physical Education across the province.
Our association provides a strong voice to lobby, advocate and support the development and delivery of quality curriculum in Health and Physical Education, Kindergarten to Grade 12. Collectively, OASPHE has representatives from many school boards across Ontario and sits on a variety of Provincial advisory boards including the Board of Directors and Council of Provinces and Territories for PHE Canada, Curriculum Advisory Board (Ophea), Safety and Injury Prevention Advisory Committee (SIPAC, Ophea) the Ontario Teachers Federation, the Ontario Healthy Schools Coalition (OHSC).
Through our on-going advocacy, our representation on national and provincial committees, and our vibrant membership list serve, we seek to provide our colleagues with the knowledge and skills they need to provide their students with opportunities to develop the Health and Physical Literacy skills needed to make a lifelong commitment to Healthy Active Living and to make healthy lifestyle choices.
