Description:
The adoption of the School as a setting for Health Education is a relatively recent phenomenon in Ireland, in that the formal recognition of its importance and legitimacy on the timetable has fully informed some but not all of the relevant Statutory and support agencies. The approach, as recognised by Metcalfe (1993) has too often been ad·hoc, relying on individuals developing parallel approaches in various pans of the country. On the other hand, Williams (1991) maintains that as far as thinking, planning and philosophy of school health education and promotion is concerned Ireland ranks with the best in Europe'. The current situation then, is one of increasing leadership with a number of development options. What follows is an overview of the activities in school health education and promotion, based on the available literature and information sources.
