Welcome to AHPSA
Would you like your questions about effective approaches to school and student health and well being answered?
Are you looking for ideas? AHPSA is developing a member’s forum to connect with people working in and with school communities.
Since the Australian Health Promoting School (AHPSA) was initially established, there have been numerous initiatives implemented globally that have involved varies levels of partnerships between education and health.
Over time vast amounts of evidence has been gathered, conclusions drawn and information shared globally.
Various resources have been developed, interventions implemented and extensive number of case studies and success stories disseminated.
AHPSA’s long term commitment to supporting the health and well being of children in school communities has been through its strategy of encouraging educational sites to take a whole school approach, with a focus on the whole child.
There is a renewed interest in the Health Promoting Schools approach as educational sites globally investigate how best to prepare their students as lifelong, successful learners and global citizens.
AHPSA plans to be an active player in this movement, helping built networks within Australia and with our international colleagues. Facilitating alliances with other like minded professional organisation will be one way we hope to help built a dynamic learning exchange for members
