Health Services


Every year, the entire Poveda community celebrates Health Month through the efforts of the Health Services staff. This year, the members of our School Clinic had activities lined up for the students, teachers and administrative staff, as well. On October 14, a special lecture on Proper Nutrition was given to all Grade School students during their general assembly. With the help of Dutch Mill, children were made aware of the benefits of eating nutritious food especially when in school. To address the changes that occur in adolescence, a Skin Specialist from Papulex also conducted a lecture for all Grade 7 students. This talk was held on October 17 to help teach them Proper Skin Care and Hygiene. Questions were entertained enthusiastically after the talk to address the girls' concerns during this particular stage in their lives. To showcase the artistic talents and knowledge on health issues of the grade school students, a poster-making contest was also held. Their excellent works were proudly displayed along the Poveda covered walk to increase health awareness in the entire school body.

To end the Health Month, teachers and the rest of the administrative and maintenance staff celebrated Health Day on October 22. This year, our theme was "Follow the Path to a Healthy New You: Cleanse Your Body, Awaken Your Mind and Nourish Your Soul," to focus on the holistic aspect of health. Free cholesterol, sugar and bone density screening were performed on the employees, while freebies from our various health sponsors were distributed to them individually. A special lecture was also given to the members of the Administrative Staff to foster proper healthy living and eating habits. Celebrating Health Month is one of the major health activities prepared for the entire Poveda community to help increase health awareness and education throughout the entire school.
