Healthy students are better learners, and academic achievement bears a lifetime of benefits for health.
Modern Knowledge Schools Health Department has direct contact with students aged 3 to 18 years, for about 7 hours per day and up to 15 critical years of their social, psychological, physical, and intellectual development. MKS play an important role in promoting the health and safety of children and adolescents by helping them to establish lifelong health patterns.
Our school is an ideal setting to teach and provide students with opportunities to improve their dietary and physical activity behaviors and manage their chronic health conditions (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, food allergies, and poor oral health). When school health policies and practices are put in place, healthy students can grow to be healthy and successful adults.
In accordance with Bahrain School Health Guidelines and Policies, Modern Knowledge Schools Health Department provides primary and preventive healthcare to ensure positive health and safe environment to children, adolescents, parents and staff in school.
Modern Knowledge Schools have three health units and a doctor’s office:
Each health unit is led by a qualified and well experienced school nurse. The nurses and health units are supervised by a school doctor.
Our school health units are properly maintained and well equipped with the necessary medical equipment to provide quality care with qualified full time staff from 6:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
I am privileged to be the Head of the Health Department of this wonderful school and to be a part of each student’s journey as they prepare to become young adults, equipped to prosper in life. Partnership and working together to promote health and wellness for our students is central to their success. Together we play a key role in developing happy, healthy and fit young people.
