Level 3 Health

Year 13 Health
Students will research, discuss and analyse contemporary health issues both in New Zealand and around the world. Health Education involves critically examining determinants of health and proposing strategies which will reduce the negative influences caused by them. They will have the opportunity to contrast and compare western scientific practices and traditional medicine and to critically examine a contemporary ethical issue such as immunisation, cannabis legalisation or euthanasia.
Students who have not previously studied Health may be admitted at the discretion of the HOD. A high level of literacy is required.
