Health & Wellbeing

Advaith takes great care of its children to ensure that they are healthy, well cared for and helped to flourish.

The health and well-being of our beloved students is a fundamental value in our hearts. Urgent health and social problems have underscored the need for collaboration among families, schools, communities and governments in taking a comprehensive approach to school-based health promotion. Advaith plays a vital role having understood the clear difference between good food and bad foods. We serve three times a day that includes two refreshments and lunch. Advaith school has a dedicated kitchen with 19 people trained, coached about foods keeping our children’s health in mind. The kitchen at Advaith offers a healthy and varied selection of food for breakfast, lunch and supper being catered for. Advaith offers food as “fuel for holistic fitness and life” program with a staunch commitment to nutritious in-house meal preparation, wholesome and 100% vegetarian. With our stringent sanitation, food safety programs and our dedication to serve our students well, we ensure a joyous and happier food times. Every bite and sip are crafted with love for our children. Few key highlights of our dining are;

  • 100% Vegetarian
  • Hygienic preparation
  • Organic vegetables grown in school’s gardens (selected)
  • Zero-waste, zero junk, zero fries, zero processed foods

Health scientists have always established that 50 percent of premature illness, injury and death is due to an unhealthy lifestyle. History and research suggests that a comprehensive school health approach improves health-related knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of students. A comprehensive school health approach includes a broad spectrum of activities and services which take place in Advaith enables children to enhance their health, develop to their fullest potential and establish productive and satisfying relationships in their present and future lives. Advaith’s goals of a comprehensive approach for a better and higher health and wellbeing are to;

  • Promote health and wellness.
  • Prevent specific diseases, disorders and injury.
  • Prevent high risk social behaviours.
  • Intervene to assist children and youth who are in need or at risk.
  • Help support those who are already exhibiting special health care needs.
  • Promote positive health and safety behaviours.

Attainment of these goals requires an integrated approach that coordinates multiple programs and provides multiple strategies. Work teams in collaboration with a coordinating council should involve families, students and community members in the program planning process. Further, professional staff development is necessary to effectively address specific health-related issues. A comprehensive school health program focuses on priority behaviors that contribute to the health, safety and well-being of students, staff and families, while assuring a supportive and health environment that nurtures academic growth and development. The successful implementation of this comprehensive approach necessitates leadership from health and education agencies and elected and appointed officials, adequate funding, trained personnel, administrative support, appropriate policy, quantitative and qualitative evaluation, legislation and regulations.

We encourage students to lead a balanced life at Advaith with emphasis placed on holistic development but not at the expense of personal well-being. It may be of interest to know that the discussion of individual students is a standing subject on the agenda: this is evidence that individual student well-being is at the heart of Advaith’s heart, ethos and culture.
