Halo of health for S2 pupils

Second-year secondary pupils will soon be able to compare patterns of diet and health at home and abroad. The newly launched Halo project (Home Abroad Liaison Opportunity) in Glasgow will set up electronic contacts with Third World countries to investigate lifestyles and health promotion.

Jean McMillan, of St Andrew's Academy, Paisley, said: "We have the support of a range business personnel."
