A semi-structured questionnaire was pre-tested on another community with similar characteristics as the study community and the questions were modified accordingly before being administered. This pre-tested questionnaire of approximately 5 min or less in length per respondent was administered to each participant by a trained research assistant with the aid of the teachers to obtain information on demography, personal hygiene and practices, health status and possible risk factors of Plasmodium and helminth infections as well as malnutrition and anaemia. The questionnaire was administered in English language and with a few exceptions in Pidgin English, the most widely spoken language in the area. The ages of participants were obtained from the school register.
