What is this course about?

Healthclass.jpg
This is a university approved academic subject with a full Achievement standard course. Subject endorsements are available in this subject. There are practical components which complement the learning in this course, however, this is not a practical based course.

This course will appeal to students who are interested in learning about current youth issues and how we are influenced by those around us, the media and society. We will explore the role that communication has in a variety of relationships and how to use decision making models to solve problems. We will also explore how sexuality is portrayed in the media and carry out a project to improve your individual well-being.

What will I learn?

In a 21st century world where change is constant, it is important that individuals are resilient and know how to manage and deal with change. In health we will investigate current youth issues in New Zealand society and explore how these impact on ourselves and others.

What sorts of things will I do?

Learning in health will take place in a co-operative environment and may include role plays, debates, student lead activities and creating magazines or websites.
