Focusing on Healthy Behaviors Helps Strengthen Curriculum and Develop Life Skills in Students

Hou-Long Junior High School, Miaoli County, Taiwan

Hou-Long Junior High School is an old school located in the outskirts of Miaoli County, Taiwan. Students are generally from low socioeconomic status families, thus the function of family is incomplete. As a result over thirty teachers often volunteer to take on the partial role of parent for many of these students. In addition, the school has made efforts to attend to the health needs of teachers and students by designating health topics to focus on each year to strengthen the curriculum and develp life skills in students. This yearly topic focus has helped the school establish school health promotion modules for the following topics: sex education, correct medication, healthy body mass index, and tobacco hazard control. The overall development of healthy behaviors in the school has required a lot of time and effort, but the school administrators expect it will be worth it in the end because it will help establish better motivation, atmosphere, and curriculum design that will give teachers, students and families a more healthy and supportive environment. This school was awarded the 2012 Silver Health Promoting School International Accreditation from the Health Promotion Administration, Ministry of Health and Welfare, for its comprehensive efforts to improve health services and enhance the daily lives of teafchers and students.
