Show 24 - Teaching Health - an Essential Part of Whole-school Wellbeing - with Dr Katie Fitzpatrick and Kat Wells - How can we use the Health Curriculum in schools to teach students about individual and collective wellbeing?

Dr Katie Fitzpatrick and HPE leader Kat Wells talk to Denise about Mental Health Education and Hauora  - their HPE curriculum resource for NZ schools. They explain how important HPE is for building wellbeing literacy and why ‘educative’ rather than ‘interventionist approaches’ are essential in schools. They are advocates for more curriculum time for this area and more PD to build teachers’ expertise in mental health and wellbeing. Listen to find out why Katie and Kat believe that whole-school wellbeing must include curriculum time for mental health and wellbeing education.
