Being healthy requires a combination of physical and mental wellbeing—good nutrition, being active and having a positive attitude. This must-have series teaches students how to keep physically and mentally healthy, and to enjoy life, through the Personal, social and community health strand of New Zealand Curriculum Health and Physical Education.
Topics such as ‘Feelings’, ‘Taking risks’ and ‘Food and nutrition’ combined with ‘Increasing physical activity’, and many others, provide a comprehensive, well-rounded resource which will inform and motivate students to be their best, healthiest selves.
