Student Health Advisor Programme
The Student Health Advisor (SHA) programme is a programme developed by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and fully supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE.) The SHA is a qualified professional (e.g. counselling, food & nutrition, sports science etc) or a trained nurse stationed in selected secondary schools. The SHA will provide advice and guidance for the students with health-related issues so that timely intervention and follow up can be offered to them. The SHA may also refer the students to appropriate specialists for further management.
The programme will benefit:
- Students who have general queries or concerns about their health
- Students who are overweight/severely overweight and need advice on healthy lifestyle practices (e.g. healthy dietary practices and physical activity)
- Students with smoking and vaping habits who are referred for smoking cessation
Students may be referred to the SHA by School Personnel, School Health Service teams, and the Health Sciences Authority. Students can also visit the SHA on a walk-in basis.
Should you prefer that your child/ward not participate in the SHA programme, please inform the school’s teacher-in-charge.
HOD Student Management, Mr Khaidir or HOD PE/CC, Mr John Tan.
