The World Health Organization (WHO) defined a health-promoting school as one that is constantly strengthening its capacity as a healthy setting for living, learning and working. Such schools foster healthy and learning environment.
It is important to note that schools have direct contact with more than 70 percent of the nation’s young people aged 5–16 years, for about 6 hours a day, and for up to 13 critical years of their social, psychological, physical, and intellectual development
The promotion of the health of learners in schools is a critical step towards quality achievement in education.
Based on the above, the ICS Outsourcing, Sales and BD Team, engaged in the setup of a functional sick bay for Ilupeju Senior Secondary School for the benefit and welfare of the pupils and teachers.
With the support of the Principal, Mrs. Akinola, Elizabeth Oluremi and Vice – Principals, Mr. Aloko, we were able to secure a space for the Sick Bay. However, the space required a total rebuild, carpentry work, Painting, cleaning and of course equipment to function as a sickbay.
