The Primary School Health curriculum provides opportunities for students to explore the physical, social, mental, and emotional aspects of a healthy life.
We convey current information on health issues and promote student accountability in the health choices they make. The curriculum provides learning opportunities that develop knowledge and attitudes about health concepts, leading to the acceptance of healthy life patterns.
An age-appropriate understanding of how our bodies work is a key component of the learning.
We encourage goal setting in the areas of nutrition, and fitness, so students will value health maintenance as a lifelong responsibility.
Students are also provided information in health areas including nutrition, diseases, physical fitness, consumer products, chemical use/abuse, safety and first aid, so they are able to make informed choices about their own health.
A variety of modalities are used including nonfiction reading, websites, videos, dramatizations, self reflective writing, discussion, and presentations.
