Health Promoting Schools Programme


Health Promoting Schools Programme

A Health Promoting School can be characterised as a school constantly strengthening its capacity as a healthy setting for living, learning and working. “

Lisnagry National School decided to become involved in the HPS Initiative in order to formalise our commitment to health. Through our involvement with the HSE Health Promotion Department we hope to bring this health promoting commitment to a new level. Lisnagry’s school as a health promoting school is one in which the Board of Management, Staff, students, parents and relevant agencies work together in a planned way to promote the health of everyone in the school community.
