Background. Political changes in Poland resulted in the inclusion of health education to school as part of a teaching process, however it was introduced officially by the 1999 education reform. Physical education became an integral part of school curricula under the name of the “pro-health” educational path. The P.E. teacher has become one of the main organizers of the tasks related to health issues. The objective of this research was to collect information to what extent physical education classes, carried out at all school education levels, contributed to the development of health competencies of the students participating in this education reform project. Material and methods. The survey comprised 128 first-year university students of both sexes attending courses in either physical education or tourism and recreation. The research regarded the Kujawsko- Pomorskie and Pomorskie provinces. A survey method was applied, and the research tool utilized was a survey questionnaire. Results. According to the research findings the most significant input into health education was provided by a university and other sources of information. The most frequently indicated area of health education carried out in schools was physical education, whereas the smallest number of responders indicated emotional health. The issue of health at physical education classes was indicated by less than half of the responders. The most frequently indicated issues were education in personal hygiene, fair play attitude, and only a small percentage of the subjects were familiarized with the rules of toughening up. Conclusion. The possibilities that physical education may give as far as the development of all areas of health is concerned were not reflected in the respondents’ opinions
