Wellness

“We are Hamilton's trusted source to educate, connect, support and provide wellness services for the youth and their families, Hamilton Schools staff, and the Hamilton community at large.”

The Wellness Committee is a group of volunteer teachers, parents, and community members that sacrifice their time to help enhance Hamilton’s wellness.

It's led by three experts in the field of health and well-being. Each of us brings different backgrounds, interests, and perspectives to the wellness team. Together, the Wellness Committee aims to deliver opportunities and content that matters to you as it relates to being well - physical, emotional, mental, social, and intellectual.
