Y11 Health Day

Caregivers should have received an email earlier in the week informing them of Health Day tomorrow, Thursday 25 June 2015. We will be having a range of guest speakers covering a range of topics. We feel this is an important time for students in the year group to take stock of their health needs. The topics and presenters are as follows:

  • Attitude – Presentation similar to previous visits on tough times, hardwired and being connected
  • Jhial McGregor – Weltrust – Drug/Alcohol issues
  • Louise Woodney – Red Cross – Save a Mate
  • Jerusha King/Marika Overdale – Family planning re: Sexual Health
  • Youthline – Mindfulness

This is a normal school day and normal attendance procedures will be followed, but students are invited to wear mufti. If you have any concerns about these topics please contact Eileen Doricott (Teacher in Charge of Health, edoricott@newlands.school.nz).

We have assistance from these health agencies in order to implement this
programme. We hope that you will support this initiative as we see this as an exciting and hopefully rewarding experience for our students.
