At HPB, we encourage schools to establish a culture that promotes healthy living through our Health Promoting Schools Framework. Here are some programmes your school can adopt to empower students, staff and parents in supporting this culture. Some of these programmes are also available to Full-time Madrasahs.
You can register for these programmes through your zonal leads.
Creating a supportive environment
We have a variety of programmes that help students learn about nutrition, physical activity, substance abuse, mental health and sexuality education.
Providing targeted intervention for identified groups
These programmes aim to help students whose health are at risk due to poor weight management or addictions. Students are empowered to make lifestyle modifications and develop healthy coping habits.
Building the capacity of stakeholders
These programmes equip parents and students to promote healthy living among their family and peers.
