    You all know that a healthy body is a basic necessity of every success and achievement. No success can be achieved if we don’t have a healthy body and mind. So, being an educator it is our first responsibility to keep ourselves healthy and to take care of our students’ health which is equally important for any success and achievement in life.
    Many of the health problems come to us because of lack of awareness regarding our own body and here schools can play a major role in bridging the health-information gap among students and staff.
