Health Level 2
Teacher in Charge: Mrs O'Neil
Would you like to ‘take action’ in our community to help promote a healthy lifestyle? Investigate a resilient person and identify what makes them great? Learn about sexuality and gender to stop discrimination?
Health Education is the place to do this, leaning about how and why different actions can enhance and promote healthy lifestyles.
Students will be required to think critically and creatively to develop constructive solutions that support and enhance well-being as well as evaluating different actions taken in the community.
Recommended Prior Learning
For students with an interest in general health and well-being. An understanding of the underlying concepts of health is not necessary but preferable (Hauora, Attitudes & Values, Health Promotion & the socio-ecological perspective).
