We have developed Knowledge and Skill  Standards for Health Education of Indian students.

In order that children develop and maintain healthy behaviours, we need to provide students with knowledge and help them develop healthy behaviour skills. These are addressed in the Health Education Standards. Standards in other countries were reviewed to develop these standards. They are designed for Indian youth. They provide the framework for the curriculum development, instruction and student assessment. 


Knowledge standards:

 Students will comprehend:

1. What is health and the reason why it is important to have good health. 

2 .Various types of diseases and injuries.  

3. The modifiable behaviours like diet and exercise and non-modifiable factors like genes that impact health.

4. Concepts related to each health topic. 


Skill Standards: 

Students  will demonstrate the ability: 

1. To set overall personal health goals. 

2. To use decision making and personal communication skills to improve health.  

3 .To analyze the influence of family, peers and media on health behaviours. 

4. To incorporate health enhancing behaviours in their daily lives. 

5. To be an advocate and help improve the health of others.Say something interesting about your business here.If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
