Fort McMurray Public School Division (FMPSD) partners with APPLE (A Project Promoting Healthy Living for Everyone) schools to build a healthy school community. APPLE Schools is the only school health promotion project in Alberta proven to change health outcomes in schools. The project works with school communities to improve students’ healthy eating, physical activity, and mental health habits in a cost-effective manner. Each year, APPLE Schools improves the health of more than 20,000 students in 70 schools across Northern Alberta, Manitoba and Northwest Territories.
APPLE Schools is a recognized, award-winning organization. In 2017, the group was awarded the Board Award of Excellence from the Fort McMurray Public School Division at their annual "Partners in Education" reception for successfully championing healthy schools.
