“SAHI-School health program” by Arabian Healthcare Group focuses on the health and wellbeing of students, by creating a culture of preventive health. SAHI is a comprehensive health screening and educational tool for students, built on the age-old ideal of a sound mind in a sound body. It is aimed at harnessing the great energies and enthusiasm of students to improve overall health, hygiene, and wellbeing through conscious changes in behavior, habits and attitude. In September 2012, SAHI launched its pilot at RAK Academy in Ras Al Khaimah, with a goal to extend to other schools in the future.

Healthy, physically fit students have a better chance for long-term success, and studies also show :

  • Healthier children make better students
  • Physical activity increases test scores
  • Only nutrient-rich food can provide the essential building blocks needed for developing brains.
  • When focus is on the overall wellbeing of students, their ability to learn, cope and contribute improves tremendously.

SAHI includes:

  • Health Screenings
  • Health Reports
  • Health Education Talks by experts in their field
  • Individual and/or Family
  • Counselling will be offered in specific cases

SAHI aims to promote working with difference and diversity and taking in to consideration religious, cultural and learning needs.
