Everybody in Schools
HAES ToolKit

Introduction

Everybody in Schools (Chancellor) was a collaborative project between Chancellor State College and the University of the Sunshine Coast. One of the major outputs from the project was the development of the Everybody in Schools Curriculum Unit Resource Resource Kit. The Resource Kit is based on the Health at Every Size Principles (HAES) of valuing body size diversity, fostering self-esteem and resilience, healthy and pleasurable eating and active living. NAAFA is very proud to able to offer this resource on our website and thank all those who worked on this exceptional project.
