Promoting Holistic Student Health: Harnessing Ayushman Bharat Health Mission, Health Care Partnerships and FHIR Technology in a Comprehensive School Health Care Program.

In the evolving world we inhabit, maintaining physical, emotional and social health is increasingly challenging. Recognising this reality and our pivotal role in nurturing holistic health, our school is excited to launch a comprehensive annual School Health Care Program for all students aged 5 to 18 years.
This program, which we consider a strategic, high-priority initiative, is focused on fostering preventive care, early identification of health issues, health education, and robust mental health support.

B. Mental Health: By providing on-site counselling services and incorporating stress management strategies in our curriculum, we hope to bolster our students' mental
C. Social Health: Through interactive workshops and group activities, we plan to enhance our students' social skills, fostering a supportive community where each student feels valued.
