It’s time to participate!

Why should your school participate in the air quality flag program?

Because it’s easy to do, completely free and good for students and their families.

It takes only minutes a day to check the webpage created for your school. Your school and  students will learn kind of ‘air day’ it is, pick a corresponding coloured flag and fly it for everyone to see, either in the school or online.

The freebies are plenty — air quality flags to fly at your school, a page just for your school on and online resources, curriculum, support and encouragement.

Participation means you and your school are part of a province-wide program helping students and their families know more about air quality and health.

Teachers – if you are looking for a science, environment or a health planning unit, this program offers many ways to introduce the subject of air quality and its impacts on health and the environment. Check out our Air Quality Health Index Learning Stations – a curriculum based program for Grades 5 and 6.

Students – would you like to take on a leadership project for your school? Share information on this program with your parent or teacher.

Parents – if your child has asthma or any another respiratory condition, this program will help you help them know how to be more active in managing their symptoms.

Now is the time to get involved.  There are a limited number of BC schools that can participate this year.  Sign up here. Want to know more about the program? Check out

We look forward to hearing from you,
