It is a Ministry of Education requirement that schools consult with their communities every two years on their Health programmes.
Here, at Otago Boys’ High School, this is done in a number of ways and provides us with a good idea of what health issues are relevant and appropriate for our junior Health classes.
Health education is split into four main areas – food and nutrition, body care and physical safety, mental health and sexuality education.
Below are the topics we currently cover at Otago Boys’ High School as part of our Health programme at Years 9 and 10;
Grief, loss and change
Keeping ourselves safe
Body Care and Physical Safety
Cycle, water and road safety
Basic first aid
Food and Nutrition
Pubertal changes and
The Sexuality Road (A family planning resource)
To help us further develop our programmes we ask that you complete this survey by
Friday 21 December, 2018.
