In the epidemiological triage, done after all 4-5  school holidays, an average of 7844 students were ex amined each year, with an average of 62 new disease  cases identifi ed. The most frequent diseases identifi ed  during the epidemiological triage were acute respira tory infections, acute tonsillitis and pediculosis. &#13;
An average of 1438 examinations were done  for acute illnesses / school year, and fi rst aid was  given in 222 accidents and traumas / school year. &#13;

The food survey was conducted 3 times a year,  the conditions of hygiene in the school, the canteen  and in the accommodation areas were controlled, and  health promotion actions were carried out. &#13;
