Health supervisors, equipped with diagnosis devices and first aid
kits and special rooms, were assigned to each school since the
launching of the educational services in Jubail Industrial City. The
said Health supervisors were repeatedly trained and developed.
The Health supervision program performs many health and
educational roles and periodic follow-up for all aspects of health and
safety in the school community, such as the reception of daily emergency
and chronic conditions, the provision of emergency and preventive
services, early detection of diseases and health problems, and the
inventory of chronic diseases in the field of education.
It is also keen to provide health activities and programs aimed at
training students and educational staff to acquire scientific and
practical skills in the field of health in conjunction with activating
the role of students as health partners and participants in the process
of health awareness and education.
The concept of consolidation of good health at schools is based on
the rehabilitation of the school to consolidate and develop good health
among its students and employees and promote the concept of good health
in the neighboring community to contribute effectively in improving the
health and behavior of young people and developing health-related life
The consolidation of good health concept is used a tool for
measuring the level of schools, in the region, in with respect to
students’ physical and psychological health, create a suitable
environment in schools, give consideration to physical and nutrition
instruction, provide health services within the school and participate
with the community adjacent to the school.
RCJ Education Services Dept. was been keen to include all its
schools in (The consolidation of good health concept) where 24 schools
have achieved the silver-level that qualifies them for the golden level,
while two recently opened schools, have achieved the bronze level that
qualifies them for the silver level. This came during a ceremony held
last week under the patronage of H.E Director General of Education in
the Eastern Region to honor the consolidation of good health concept
schools. The participating schools were evaluated through an external
evaluation committee from the Ministry of Education with the
participation of the School Health Department in the region.
This comes to highlight the importance of schools as a means of
influencing health and education of future generations, to be in line
with the developed countries school health strategy , and as well
instilling developing right health trends to enhance students’ health,
in particular, and society, in general.
