Eye and Dental Health of Students
Description:
During September to November 2005, KWNC conducted visual acuity tests for 2,488 primary pupils from 14 schools in Macao. The results showed that primary pupils were prone to myopia due to many factors in their daily life and study habit. The results also showed deteriorating dental health among them. To address this issue, apart from existing eye and dental care promotional activities for primary pupils, Education and Youth Affairs Bureau has run eye care training courses for primary school teachers since 2006 so as to train them to take proper care of the pupils’ health at school. 
Courses of this kind dealing with a wider range of health issues should continue for teachers so that they can gain more knowledge of pupils’ health issues and learn how to handle them more effectively.
