Parent Survey - Health Curriculum

Board of Trustees —June 2022

The Ministry of Education requires all schools to consult with their community on the school’s delivery of the Health Curriculum.

The following is an overview of Health Education at Ahipara School and the link to the community survey can be found at the bottom. This survey will help us to gather your thoughts and ideas about our Health Curriculum and help us further develop our programmes.

Health and Physical Education at Ahipara School

The NZ Health & Physical Education curriculum is divided into four strands:

The four strands are:

· Personal health and physical development, in which students develop the knowledge, understandings, skills, and attitudes that they need in order to maintain and enhance their personal well-being and physical development

· Movement concepts and motor skills, in which students develop motor skills, knowledge and understandings about movement, and positive attitudes towards physical activity

· Relationships with other people, in which students develop understandings, skills, and attitudes that enhance their interactions and relationships with others

· Healthy communities and environments, in which students contribute to healthy communities and environments by taking responsible and critical action.

Through these strands, our team teaches various topics as a unit or by integrating concepts with other areas of the curriculum.

At Ahipara School we endeavor to provide a caring, child friendly environment where students feel safe, supported and secure. Opportunities are provided for students that promote a sense of self-­value and worth. All students are encouraged to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Here are some examples of how the Health curriculum is integrated into your child’s learning:

  • Positive Behavior for Learning
