Health Promoting Schools

Health Promoting School:

The Healthy Ireland-Health Promoting Schools’ (HPS) Flag is presented by the HSE to schools as an acknowledgement of their work in improving the health of their school communities. We here in Tullyallen have been successful in receiving both HPS flag’s as a recognition of all the Health Promotion work that has have done over the years.

The health-promoting schools' programme is a whole school process to move away from the mindset that being healthy is solely revolved around what we eat. In Tullyallen NS the health-promoting schools' programme enables the whole school community to focus on health and wellbeing. Students, staff, parents and guardians have been consulted to identify priority health areas. We addressed our schools health status under the following categories: environment (social and physical) curriculum, policies and partnerships.
