Course Description

Stage 2 Health and Wellbeing focuses on the Health and Well-being of individuals, communities, and societies in the environments they share. Students take a holistic approach, recognising various factors that shape the behaviour and attitudes of individuals and groups in relation to healthy living and caring for themselves and the environment. They gain an understanding of how Health incorporates the underpinning principles of respect for diversity, social justice, and supportive environments. They consider the physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and spiritual dimensions of well-being.
