Whole school approach Complete the template What you do already for Health Education in your school. What do you need to find out when you return to school?
The National Curriculum It is not seen as a prescriptive document providing the content/skill to be delivered. A national curriculum is viewed as a framework to set the direction for learning. Expectation that teachers, as professionals, will develop programmes reflective of this framework. (Slide Adapted from Otago University 2008 HPE NZC ppt.)
The School Curriculum Must incorporate principles, values, key competencies and learning area introductory statements and appropriate achievement objectives in response to the identified interests and learning needs of their students. Reflect community needs/desires. (Slide Adapted from Otago University 2008 HPE NZC ppt.)

Consultation Who makes up our community? Why do we consult? What methods of consultation will we use?
Levels of Consultation Level 1 - Being Informed Level 2 - taking part in activities Level 3 - Dialogue and exchange of views Level 4 - Helping to make Decisions Level 5 - Having responsibility to act.
HPE Consultation When did your school last complete a consultation regarding health education? What was it about? How did you do it? What did you do with the information?
What is the graduate profile of a student who has experienced a sound health education programme?
Definition… A health-literate person can be defined as an independent learner able to think for themselves, solve problems, and make informed decisions in order to promote and maintain health for themselves, others, and society. The Curriculum in Action Making Meaning: Making a Difference
Body Activity In groups draw an outline of a body. Write on and around the body everything that makes up the graduate profile. Consider the knowledge, skills and attitudes that this student would need.
Closing thought Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nona te ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana I te matauranga, nona te ao. The bird that partakes of the miro berry reigns in the forest The bird that partakes of the power of knowledge has access to the world.
