Welcome to the Oyster Bay High School
This website is designed to provide the Oyster Bay East-Norwich community with relevant information regarding health and wellness. In addition to being a source of information, this page has one unique quality. Almost all of the information on this site was compiled by the students in Mr. Rizzuto's high school health class through projects, assignments or individual research. This is a student driven community resource. The topics covered on this site reflect many, if not all of the topics covered in the high school health curriculum at Oyster Bay. The site is never complete, all pages are constantly being updated and edited so check back often. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us using the "contact us" link on the side of this site.
SO, WHAT IS HEALTH?
"It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver."
Health has been defined by the World Health Organization and supported by the Center for Disease Control as "a complete state of physical, mental and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmary." This definition brings to light the fact that being healthy incorporates much more than maintaining appropriate bodily functions. True health incorporates your mental state, how you form and manage relationships, how you deal with stress and how you make decisions among many other things.
