La Consolacion College Bacolod

Health Services

Amid this pandemic, it is imperative that students need greater attention not only for their psychological well being but as well as their physical wellness. With the pandemic continuing to challenge the capacity of hospitals, telephone medical consultations are a helpful means to help students who are not feeling well even from their homes. The school clinic provides medical consultation services online for students.


To improve, maintain the health and wellness of the LCC-B Community in support of the school’s Institutional Mission. We are committed to the belief optimal health is essential for each individual in order to attain his/her potential.

La Consolacion College has set for its objectives the education of the whole person.  The health, both mental and physical, is an important factor in the development of a child.
Good health is the key to physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of a person.  Thus, this health services program is based on the following basic principles:
  1. It is built on the philosophy that health is a way of living; mentally, emotionally, socially and physically. It grows out of the entire child’s experience in school, home and community.
  2. It is an integral part of the curriculum.
  3. Health Information, habits, and attitudes have to be taught in a purposeful and functional program. An example is the concept of “cleanliness” which has to be taught in the home and in school.
  4. The objective is not only good health but the best health possible for each individual.
  5. Health instruction must be closely related to and utilize for healthful living and the health services.
  6. The environment for health education is broader than the curriculum of the school. It extends to the buildings, equipment, administration and the entire life of the child since they make possible situations for desirable practice.
  7. Evaluation of the health program and pupil’s progress is in terms of improved physical, mental, moral and social behavior and opportunities provided for healthful practice.
  8. The entire school personnel have a definite responsibility for and must cooperate in taking advantage of the many possibilities favorably affecting the health of the students.
  9. A school cannot build an effective health program in isolation.  The cooperation of all community agencies dealing with health is needed to produce healthy Christian citizen of every community.
