Be Healthy and Safe Campaign

KSPS Students launched a campaign in the "World Health Day" entitled “Be Healthy and Safe” where students gave tips for a healthy and safe life to their parents, peers and visitors.
This campaign was the ending of an international project entitled "Promoting Healthy Food Habits" provided by the "American University of Beirut Nutrition Department" every Monday to 4th, 5th and 6th graders. This project is launched under the patronage of Nestle and LAFS (Lebanese Association for Food safety). Every week students gained new useful concepts and information about healthy habits. They learned how to classify one day food intake into food group and identify the nutritional characteristics of each food group. Students realized the importance of fruits, vegetables, and water between meals, and they differentiated between healthy and unhealthy snacks.
In the “World Health day” celebration, students explained international health habits and international food safety guidelines, and in a funny short play they presented the differences in food habits between Mediterranean and Western countries.After that, a healthy Breakfast was offered by Mrs. Carla HabibMourad and a lecture to parents about healthy kids. Simultaneously, students played healthy games, won prizes, and prepared healthy food sale.
"I would like to thank and salute ALL ALL Makassed KSPS teachers, staff, parents and students who worked together, hand in hand, to make our campaign "be healthy and safe" a great success.
Special thanks to AUB Nutrition Department represented by Mrs. Carla Habib Mourad, Miss Nancy Awada, British Council represented by Mrs. Mayssa Dawi, LAFS team for their contribution in "Be Healthy and Safe" Campaign." Mrs. Rana Sabbidine
