An apple a day keeps the doctor away," says an English proverb. Apples are good things, of course, but if you don't take care of your health, doctors will have to do it for you.
To study well you should be in good health, and the health of school students is very important in our country.
The school-doctor is a usual figure about the place, and she always has a nurse to help her.
The doctor has her consulting-room in the school building, and every pupil has a medical inspection twice a year, at the beginning and at the end. There are other examinations from time to time during the year.
The doctor or nurse often organizes circles in hygiene and first aid after school, and usually has a group of pupils who act as propagandists for good health habits. They often publish a wall newspaper, too.
The doctor and nurse inspect the school premises for cleanliness, and may go into the school kitchen to see that the food is prepared under hygienic conditions.
They also attend teachers' meetings from time to time and give talks to the parents on various health topics.
Did you know all that? And here is an Arabian proverb about health: "He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything."
