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:

  • The kindergarten health unit is located on the ground floor of the kindergarten building next to the Principal office in the administration area. 
  • The elementary health unit is located on the ground floor of the elementary building between Grade 1 classes.
  • The middle/high school health unit and the doctor’s office are located on the ground floor of the high school building between the orange and the purple wings.

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.

Clinic Procedure

Clinic Procedure

  1. The school health department provides first aid only for illnesses and injuries that occur in school during school hours. Any illness or injury occurring outside of school must be treated privately at home.
  2. If a student is ill or injured, they should be kept at home until they are deemed fit enough to return to school by their health care provider. Please email the class teacher/grade counselor and copy the doctor ( and the administrative assistant, explaining your child’s reason for absence. A sick student will not be allowed back in school without a medical clearance certificate detailing that the child is fit to return to school.
  3. If the student is not feeling well at school, then the student will inform the teacher who will then send the unwell student to the health unit. The child will be assessed by the health staff and first aid will be provided according to the Health Department’s regulations and protocols and the parents consent.
  4. Unwell students will be observed after treatment for an average of 10 minutes in the health unit. The student will be sent back to the class if deemed to be stable by the health team. The decision to send a child back to class or home is done at the discretion and judgment of the health staff.
  5. At the discretion of the health staff, parents will be contacted via their registered numbers. If one parent does not answer, the other will be contacted. They will be informed about the situation of their child and whether the student can go back to class or needs to go home or the hospital. Students may not contact their parents on their own to collect them.
  6. Parents are required to pick up their children within 30 minutes (in cases of suspicion of communicable diseases, flu-like illness, or a suspicion of COVID-19) or within 1 hour (for other illnesses or injuries) after being informed to collect their children.
  7. Emergency cases that require immediate transfer to the emergency department will follow the Health Department’s Accidents, Injuries and Medical Emergencies Procedure and Policy.
  8. Students whose parents have not submitted their medical consents cannot be treated in the school’s health units. Only in cases of emergency will first aid be applied according to the Health Department’s Accidents, Injuries and Medical Emergencies Procedure and Policy.
  9. Under no circumstances is a student permitted to leave the school because of illness unless arrangements for dismissal have been made through the health department. They must be assessed by the health department before they are released to their parents and excused from school.
  10. Parents should not send medications, inhalers, or pills in students’ bags without prior approval from the health department.

This challenge is about creating a grade level piece of art that has a touch of every single student. Each grade level will be provided with one big canvas, where each student has to stick a picture, piece of paper, plastic, chocolate wrap or any 2D piece in resemblance to them of being kind to themselves.
