Health Promoting School
MIDasia Foundation Academy - Health Promoting School. "Learning and health go hand in hand. Good health of children and young people is a prerequisite for educational achievement. Good health of teachers is important to the development of effective schools. Health promoting schools aim at empowering students, staff and parents to actively influence their lives and their living conditions." [Education and Health in Partnership: European Conference, 2002]
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and to be given every opportunity to achieve their full potential. The unlocking of this potential is one of our key aims and a vital ingredient of its success is the health promoting school.
