Health and well-being at CIS
The focus on health in schools encompasses the overall well-being of students, ensuring they grow into healthy adults by engaging in various activities related to multiple dimensions of health and wellness.
Chitkara International School (CIS) prioritises the health and well-being of its students, actively promoting health through education and hygiene practices. Integrated into our curriculum, health education and safety measures remain consistent guidelines for our students.
Collaboration with Apollo Hospital
Establishing a School Health Committee and in partnership with Apollo Hospital, Chandigarh, conducts routine health check-ups. These collaborative efforts result in health camps, counselling sessions, and workshops dedicated to health education. The school maintains individual health cards recording bi-annual check-ups encompassing height, weight, paediatrics, eye, dental, skin, and ENT evaluations. Identifying issues such as eye problems, dental caries, and growth analysis aids in providing necessary interventions. In emergencies, Apollo Hospital provides ambulance services and required medical support.
