Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Lang

Health Education: In Health Education, the focus is on the Well-Being of the students themselves, of other people, and of Society through learning in health-related contexts. Students develop competencies for mental wellness, reproductive health and positive sexuality, safety management, decision-making and understanding of nutritional needs. Students build resilience through strengthening their personal identity and sense of self-worth, they learn to demonstrate empathy, and they develop skills that enhance relationships. Health education can be continued as a full academic option at NCEA Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3.

Physical Education: Year 10 students experience a range of physical activities. The programme for 2018 is based upon the new Health and Physical Education Curriculum.
