Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Phillips

When completing this course, students focus on four topics of work. During the first unit, students gain understanding of how well-being can change, and strategies to support these changes. Secondly, students decide upon a goal that they want to achieve and set about trying to achieve it over a 3 week period. The third topic in the course is Sexuality Education, where students examine the broad subject of Sexuality, including non-heterosexual youth, keeping safe, support for maintaining positive sexuality and the influences on sexual behaviour. Finally, students learn about a variety of drugs, focusing on strategies that can be applied to prevent use and understand some of the consequences of use.

Students who study this course will learn a variety of real life skills that can be transferred to many aspects of their lives outside of school. The interactive and discussion-based nature of the subject makes it an enjoyable learning environment for all students.
