Abstract

Smoking in teenagers increased significantly in Indonesia. Most of teenagers 11-13 years were junior high school students. Schools had a response to prevent smoking behavior in the school environment. This study aimed to explore the role of schools in preventing smoking behavior in the student at Tegal City. This study was a qualitative study carried out in Tegal City, Central Java. The study sites were in 8 public junior high schools in Tegal City. The data collected through in-depth interviews, observation, and document study. School roles in preventing smoking behavior of students have been implemented by making regulation and socialize it to the students and their parents. They were providing education and advice on the dangers of smoking to their health, collaborating with other stakeholders, and discipline the students who carry cigarettes and smoking in the school environment. School roles would be more effective when they were collaborated with students’ parents and recruit students as peer cadres in preventing smoking behavior in school.
