Description

This study aimed to address the problems encountered by schools in maintaining sanitation and hygienic practices and the extent of these practices. The descriptive and correlational designs were used in the study. The research utilized percentage, weighted mean and Spearman rank correlation coefficient in treating the data. The study revealed that school encountered high extent of problems in the area of Food handling while moderate on the following areas; personal hygienic practices, environmental safety, waste segregation and maintenance and use of school health facilities. The extent of practices is high in waste segregation and environmental safety while moderate in areas of food handling, personal hygienic practices and maintenance and use of school health facilities. The degree of relationship between the problems encountered in maintaining school sanitation and hygienic practices and the extent of these practices is “moderate”. The result also revealed that there is a difference in problems encountered by school in maintaining sanitation and hygienic practices when grouped according to their nutritional status. Schools with less than 8% of wasted and severely wasted pupils and schools with more than 8% of wasted and severely wasted pupils encountered different extent of problem in food handling; similar in waste segregation and the same level of problems in personal hygiene, environmental safety and maintenance of school health facilities.
