Total well-being goes beyond weight and fitness to encompass the physical, mental and social health of students.
What is the Holistic Health Framework (HHF)?
The HHF aims to support schools with a framework to adopt a holistic health promotion approach. Through the HHF, schools provide opportunities for every student to develop the skills and attitudes to live healthily, and build students' motivation to sustain a healthy lifestyle even after they leave school.
Schools are guided by 3 principles when implementing the HHF:
Every student is able to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live healthily.
Trained teachers and qualified para-educators teach holistic health effectively.
Key components of the HHF
Each school has a shared vision on student health and an action plan to implement the programmes and build resources.
Programmes are delivered through the school curriculum as well as activities outside curriculum time.
Stakeholders support schools’ health-promoting efforts by sharing their expertise and resources.
