- According to World Health Organization, health education is any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health, by increasing their knowledge or influencing their attitudes. School communities are one of primary communities in every city include Manado City. These students are prone to communicable disease such as diarrhea. This study aims to explore the differences of health education intervention on students. This was a pre-experiment study (one group pre-test post-test) which conducted on Manado 12 Public Elementary School located in Tuminting Subdistrict. Total sampling technique was used with total of 44 respondents. This study used pre-test and post-test questionnaires, standing banners, posters, leaflets, videos, LCD projector, and laptop. Data were analyzed by paired t-test. Results showed most respondents were at low category, amounting to 29 people (65.9%) before intervention and afterward, all respondents scores increased to good category, amounting to 44 people (100%). Paired t-test analysis obtained p value of 0.000, so there was a significant difference before and after intervention on elementary students in Manado 12 Public Elementary School. The study suggested the school should provide more facilities which can support and enable students to implement clean and healthy living behavior around the school environment.
