Health Education at Te Kowhai School
November 2020 - Te Kowhai School Board of Trustees
Health education is learning based around hauora (wellbeing), attitudes and values, relationships, body development and health promotion. Where possible this learning is integrated across all areas of the the curriculum and we invite community consultation via responses to the Health Education Survey.
This curriculum area is divided into four strands:
1. Personal Health and Physical Development - Develop the knowledge, understandings, skills and attitudes towards physical education. Regularly participate in a range of physical activities in a variety of ways.
2. Movement Concepts and Motor Skills - Develop motor skills, knowledge and understandings about movement and positive attitudes towards physical education. Regularly participate in a range of physical activities in a variety of ways.
3. Relationships with others - Develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to achieve positive interactions and relationships with others.
4. Healthy Communities and Environments - Contribute to healthy communities and environments by taking responsible and critical action.
Through these strands we look at self esteem, relating to others, fitness, healthy eating, friendships, aquatics, ball skills, traffic safety.
In some instances we work with outside agencies to add value to our programmes.
