Physical and Mental Health

Why does health matter?

Health is important to everyone as it has an impact on our physical, mental and social well-being. Maintaining good health helps to keep our bodies free from illnesses, control our emotions, and improve our social skills. Hence this would have an impact on our performance in school and work.

The school serves as a platform for students and staff to acquire knowledge, skills and values that will influence them in future. Hence, the promotion of health is of utmost importance as it will continue to impact students and staff even after they leave our school.

  • Physical Health
