Childhood and adolescence form the most joyful period of an individual’s life. They are times of immense creative energy, self-discovery and exploration of the world.
Healthy living incase of school children is the prime concern of all stakeholders including principals, parents, teachers and the community. Schools can be dynamic settings for promoting health, for enabling children to grow and mature into healthy adults. To achieve this objective collective responsibility needs to be assumed. An important dimension is that of experience and development of health skills and physique through practical engagements with play, exercises, sports and practices of personal and community hygiene. The Comprehensive health program would focus on the overall well being comprising emotional, social and mental health of the child. It would act as the enabling and organizational point for conducting activities related to various dimensions of health and wellness. This would form an effective monitoring and feedback system for the overall health of a child during his schooling.
