What should I know?

This is the first year that Ormiston Senior College is running a Health course. As a result some content that would support achievement may not have been covered in Physical Education in the previous year.

What could I learn?

Hauora (Well-being) features strongly in this course and something that will be covered in depth at the start of this course. Common health issues and contributing factors to health issues such as

  • body image
  • stress management
  • adolescent alcohol use and misuse
  • food related issues
  • maintenance of reproductive/sexual health
  • coping with change
  • any relevant well-being issues


What are the course costs?

There are no course costs associated with this course at the moment. However, there may be some class activities organised based on contexts that may incur an optional cost to participate. These will be confirmed throughout the year.
