Growing community support helps SD71 employees thrive

For many years the Comox Valley community has supported school district employees in many unique ways from offering discounts on products and services to donating prizes and gift certificates for staff celebrations and events.

Directly and indirectly, these local community businesses are supporting and promoting the health and wellness of the school district through the Comox Valley Schools’ Work 2 Wellness Program.

W2W is an employee program that is committed to educating and supporting employees and their families in various lifestyle areas, including but not limited to: financial wellness, physical activity, healthy living, nutrition, and mental health.

Work 2 Wellness is proud to partner with over 75 local businesses in an effort to foster positive lifestyle changes by offering great discounts to wellness programs, activities, retail, resources, and services for all SD71 employees. In addition to providing employee discounts, our W2W partners have supported various employee events including: 12 Days of Fitmas, Learn 2 Run, Knit 2 Wellness, After-School Yoga, TC 10K Team, Appy Hour Celebrations and more.

Thank you, Comox Valley for supporting our employees who are making a difference in public education.
