A training programme was developed and implemented for 56 primary school teachers of Barasat II block in North 24 Parganas district as per their recommended roles and responsibilities in School health service. The methodology consisted of development of learning objectives, evaluation parameters (questionnaire and check list) and teaching-learning materials. This was followed by pre-training assessment, implementation of training and re-training and evaluation of the outcome 7 days and 3 months after initial training and re-training. One way analysis of variance revealed significant overall improvement of the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domain of learning of school teachers. The need of periodic re-inforcement training with adequate scope of practice under supervision were emphasized.
