The Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) is pleased to announce that ACK’s project titled as “ACK Health Day” has been selected as one of the winning projects for the KOC CEO HSSE Award 2017.
The ACK Health Day has been considered by KOC’s committee as a great initiative in spreading awareness to the people on healthy living, as each Health Day event had a theme of its own in which focused on major health effects. ACK’s program had exceeded expectations by including sports activities, stage shows, and prize rewarding and major press releases. ACK was the only College to win in this competition under the category of ‘educational sector’.
The ACK Health Day initiative was instigated in 2016 as part of the ongoing commitment by the college towards promotion of Healthy Lifestyles for students, staff, their families and the Kuwait community. ACK’s Health Day event is organized by ACK Healthy Living Committee which is composed of staff and students from different levels of the organization to provide diversified Health and Safety promotional culture activities. The committee is currently working on two main programs which are the “ACK Health Day” events and “Smoking Awareness” Program. Further ACK Health Days with differing themes will continue to be held each semester by the college to ensure ongoing commitment towards raising health awareness.
