Personal Fitness

Health Topics

State required health topics such as human sexuality and relationships, drugs, alcohol and healthy living are integrated into this very active, discussion based curriculum. In addition, students will be instructed on how to keep themselves safe by making good choices of friends and good decisions regarding the media and dating relationships.


Family and Independent Living

This course is designed to meet the second half of the ConVal Health requirement for students in grade 11. Topics will focus on decisions that need to be made for students to make healthy decisions regarding life style, relationships, and development of adult level skills such as parenting. Students will be instructed on where to find resources in the community and on how to live within a community of people in a cooperative and supportive manner.

The consequences of poor decision making on self and others will be strongly emphasized.
