The School Health Program is defined as “the school procedures that contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the health of pupils and school personnel including health services healthful living and health education”.
But to speak the truth our school hardly ever has a well defined School Health Programme incidentally the teaching about health is done while treating other subjects of the curriculum -such as physiology, hygiene and biology. The approach to these subjects is so academic that they are considered to be important from the ‘examination point of view’ and have very little effect on actual health practices and attitudes.
But in general, school health education should be integrated with all the activities in the curriculum. It should be a part and parcel of the child’s daily life. It must include the whole life of the child taking in to consideration his relationship with the school community as well as the community outside the school.
