This study examines the role that a School Health Committee (SHC) plays in enhancing school-based health promotion. Designed in collaboration with the local district health unit to inform practice, a qualitative case study design of one school in Northern Ontario with a SHC was used, exploring the roles of the public health nurse, a teacher, a parent, and four students using semi-structured interview, a student focus group, document analysis, and participant observation. The theoretical framework that guided the study included the Diffusion of Innovations theory and the Comprehensive School Health model.
