Health promotion for schools
Welsh network of healthy school schemes (WNHSS)
Welsh involvement in the European Network of Health Promoting Schools led to the development of a Wales Network of Healthy Schools. This was later refined to a network of local schemes, the Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes (WNHSS).
European network of health promoting schools (ENHPS)
The European Network of Health Promoting Schools (ENHPS) was created in 1992 as a partnership between the World Health Organisation, the European Commission and the Council of Europe. It was set up to establish model schools in each country. These schools would demonstrate the impact of health promotion in the school setting and then share their experience.
Sue Bowker, Head of Branch, Young and Older People is currently acting as the UK Co-ordinator for the ENHPS.
