Health Curriculum Consultation

 Click on this link: Health Curriculum Survey

In health education, students develop their understanding of the factors that influence the health of individuals, groups, and society: lifestyle, economic, social, cultural, political, and environmental factors.

Students develop competencies for mental wellness, reproductive health and positive sexuality, and safety management, and they develop understandings of nutritional needs.
Students build resilience through strengthening their personal identity and sense of self-worth, through managing change and loss, and through engaging in processes for responsible decision making. They learn to demonstrate empathy, and they develop skills that enhance friendships and relationships.
Students use these skills and understandings to take critical action to promote personal, interpersonal, and societal well-being.

The four underlying and interdependent concepts are at the heart of this learning area:

Hauora – a Māori philosophy of well-being that includes the dimensions taha wairua, taha hinengaro, taha tinana, and taha whānau, each one influencing and supporting the others.

Attitudes and values – a positive, responsible attitude on the part of students to their own well-being; respect, care, and concern for other people and the environment; and a sense of social justice.

The socio-ecological perspective – a way of viewing and understanding the interrelationships that exist between the individual, others, and society.

Health promotion – a process that helps to develop and maintain supportive physical and emotional environments and that involves students in personal and collective action.

Please complete this form online or complete the paper form and return to the administration office by 6th July. If you have more than one child you can submit this form again so it is specific to your child’s level.

Thank you for taking time to complete this survey as part of the consultation process that will shape and develop our Health Curriculum on the needs of out community. In health and physical education, the focus is on the well-being of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in health-related and movement contexts.
