Grades 9-12: Sexual Health Services in Waterloo Region District School Board Secondary Schools

Public Health Nurses are available at Waterloo Region District School Board secondary schools for one half day each week to provide one-on-one counselling, education, support and resources to students on a range of topics, including abstinence.

Starting January 2014, two secondary schools in Waterloo Region will be involved in a year-long pilot study to enhance those services. To learn more about the current service and how it is changing, check the Parent Questions & Answers document.
