At the centre of everything we do in Health Education are the four underlying concepts of health; Hauora, socio-ecological perspectives, attitudes and values, and health promotion. 

All learning activities encourage students to develop an awareness of their own well-being (physical, social, spiritual, mental and emotional), as well as that of others and of society as a whole. Using this as a central pillar of Health Education, we also aim to establish an environment that is respectful, accepting, safe, positive, inclusive and encouraging. Connected with the key competency of ‘participating and contributing’, we also develop a learning environment that is engaging, relevant and interactive.
