HSC PDHPE - Option 1: Health of Young People
We have covered 'The Health of Young People' in some way or form since you guys were in Year 7. Plus, you are YOUNG PEOPLE. So this is an area of study that should make a lot of sense to you. Below are bits & pieces from the unit, plus some links to good resources.
Option 1: Health of Young People Powerpoint
Below is the Powerpoint for the unit. It may feel like the unit was a little disjointed due to exams and what not, also be aware you covered some of the unit with your assessment task
To what extent do Young People enjoy good health
The syllabus requires you to analyse TWO of the following health issues for young people:
• mental health problems and illnesses
• body image
• alcohol consumption
• road safety
• sexual health
• emerging health issues; for example, gambling, cyberbullying, party crashes or drink spiking.
In class you completed a summary of ONE concern, which you all received the class summaries in a booklet.
Here is the PowerPoint and information sheet from the concern I covered; Mental Health.

No School No Play
Yes this is AHHHH-MAZING because our favourite noogas are in it.. but what is even more amazing is that it is an actual initiative you can use.
No School, No Play initiative is a program run through schools with the support of Cricket Australia. It aims at increasing physical activity (with cricket sessions) whilst building cultural awareness for young ATSI individuals (through Aboriginal art clinics & programs). As we learnt on Friday, Young ATSI people tend to feel a disconnect from their culture, so this program addresses that, whilst being subsidised by the government and run for FREE through school (SRHS is in a low SES area).
