AIA Healthiest Schools Programme
Siobhan Haughey also participates in a short video to promote the AIA Healthiest Schools programme as an outstanding athlete, encouraging students to develop healthy and good living habits at an early age. Earlier this year, AIA set an ambition to engage a billion people to live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives by 2030. The AIA Healthiest Schools programme, to be launched in Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand and Vietnam during the 2022/2023 academic year, will contribute to this goal by putting it into action. In Hong Kong, the AIA Healthiest Schools programme will be available in all primary schools and will provide teachers with free, curriculum-linked online resources developed by professional educators. These resources cover four areas, namely, healthy eating, active lifestyles, mental wellbeing, as well as health and sustainability, and are designed to encourage students to actively pursue physical and mental wellness.
AIA Hong Kong & Macau Ambassador Ms. Siobhan Haughey said: “Playing sports has always given me a lot of pleasure since I was a child, and made me realise how important it is to stay fit. To live a healthy life, one must develop good living habits at an early age. AIA Healthiest Schools is a very meaningful programme worthy of school participation as it helps instil healthy behaviours in primary students in diversified aspects.”
Ms. Tse added: “Helping people live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives has always been the purpose of AIA and the AIA Healthiest Schools programme is putting it into action. We would like to thank Siobhan for her staunch support of the programme. We are also very grateful for the opportunity to help schools foster students’ health and wellbeing encompassing body and mind on top of their intellectual development. The programme would nurture healthier human capital of the next generation, bringing lasting positive change to society.”
The AIA Healthiest Schools programme will include a competition to serve as a platform for participating schools to build communities that share best practices in promoting health and wellness and showcase their success in driving better health outcomes. Prizes worth US$50,000 in total will be given to winning schools to help them accelerate their health initiatives. Find out more details by visiting ahs.aia.com.
