Health is Wealth. Health of school children is of prime importance. Most of the students are unaware of their health, even though the schools have a number of programmes to promote the health. Health education motivates students to improve and maintain their health, prevent disease, and reduce risky behaviors. Health education curricula and instruction help students learn skills which will use to make healthy choices throughout their lifetime. The present study is a search into the health awareness of secondary school students. The aim of the study is to find out the extent of health awareness among secondary school students. Data was collected from 132 secondary school students by using an awareness test. Findings showed that the health awareness of secondary school students is low and there is no difference in the health awareness between boys and girls. But there is significant difference in health awareness of students of government and government- aided schools. Healthy people constitute a healthy nation. Health awareness is to be given to students through all possible ways.
