Health Education focuses on expanding students’ knowledge, understanding and skills to help them achieve successful outcomes in personal, social and online contexts with a focus on Personal, Social and Community Health.
Students are challenged to practice new skills that build and maintain their confidence and self-esteem, as well as equipping them with strategies to navigate the physical, social and emotional challenges of life. They learn how to take positive action to enhance their health, safety and wellbeing by applying problem-solving and effective communication skills through a strengths-based approach. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop, enhance and exhibit attitudes and values that promote a healthy lifestyle.
Our Health program is run by a specialist Health and Phys. Ed. Teacher. At LDHS we use the SDERA (School Drug Education and Road Awareness) resources, Mind Up, Zones of Regulation and Protective Behaviours.
