Health Promoting School Charter 2017-2018

Our School has been one of the participating schools of “Hong Kong Healthy Schools Award Scheme” since 2013. The concept of Health Promoting School (HPS) was first initiated by World Health Organization (WHO). A Health Promoting School is a place where all members of the school community work together to provide students with integrated and positive experiences, culture and structures which promote and protect their health. The ceremony of signing the Healthy School Charter on 21st and 22nd September 2017 marked the commencement of a series of health-promoting activities in the academic year 2017-2018.

The Principal, Deputy Principals, Assistant Principal and representatives of teachers, supporting staff, parents and students signed on the charter on behalf of all the stakeholders of the school. They are committed to achieving a healthy state of physical, mental and social well-being and to taking part in community health-promoting activities.

The Health Ambassadors also took this opportunity to encourage the students and teachers to register as an organ donor and spread the positive message of organ donations during the charter signing ceremony.
