Health promoting school: Why and How

We believe in creating the school a health promoting unit because:

  • Health and well-being of students affect their academic achievements
  • Every student's values, behaviour and attitude affect the people around them
  • Students who feel good about their school are less likely to undertake high risk behaviors and have better learning outcome
  • Schools are health promotion settings for the benefit of staff and the students

Building blocks of a Health Promoting School

  • School leadership 
  • Responsibility and authority
  • Commitment from stakeholders including management, staff, students and local community

School Health Accreditation Process is the key to create and improve Health Promoting Schools
