Health and Physical Education

The year 9 core Health programme uses a ‘strengths-based’ model and assists students to establish positive attitudes towards their health and well-being.

Health issues relevant to young people are explored and students engage in activities designed to equip them with life skills and appropriate strategies to use in response to well-being and health issues.

Topics covered include:

  • First aid

  • Taekwondo
