To assessthe knowledge regarding swine flu among students of selected schools. To evaluate the effectiveness of planned health teaching on knowledge regarding swine flu among students of selected schools. To find out association between knowledge regarding swine flu with selected demographic variables. Design: pre experimental one group pre test post-test study design. Sample: 100 school students from selected municipal schools. Tool: socio demographic data and structured questionnaire on knowledge of swine flu. Validity: validity of the tool was done by 16 experts and modifications were made accordingly. Reliability: Reliability was estimated by using split-half method. The total reliability of the tool was calculated to be 0.8146 by Cronbach’s alpha method. The estimated r value reliability is greater than 0.7, which shows that the tool is reliable. Data collection: Data was collected from 100 school students of selected municipal schools. Data analysis: The data collected was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings of the present study showed that most of the school students had inadequate knowledge regarding swine flu during pre-test. But after the planned teaching their knowledge score increased in the post-test. The planned health teaching significantly brought out an improvement in the knowledge regarding swine flu among school students. There was a significant association between knowledge and age of the students as p value < 0.05 whereas the other variable like gender, educational status of parents and information on swine flu was not significantly associated as p>0.05.
