Humans are not only created by God with a marvellous body machine but re-created in His Image through Christ. Salvation is God’s plan for complete healing and restoration of the whole man.

Our School has a commitment to promoting an understanding of how the body works. It will encourage a balanced and healthful lifestyle that will enhance health, reduce stress, improve personal well-being, caring for others and prepare students for eternal life.

Our vision places a strong emphasis on the Health and Physical Education Programme, “Students will exhibit holistic GROWTH in their personal, social and spiritual development as children of God.”

In health and physical education, the focus is on the well-being of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in health-related and movement contexts.

Four underlying and interdependent concepts are at the heart of this learning area:

  • Hauora – a Māori philosophy of well-being that includes the dimensions taha wairua, taha hinengaro, taha tinana, and taha whānau, each one influencing and supporting the others.
  • Attitudes and values – a positive, responsible attitude on the part of students to their own well-being; respect, care, and concern for other people and the environment; and a sense of social justice.The socio-ecological perspective – a way of viewing and understanding the interrelationships that exist between the individual, others, and society.
  • Health promotion – a process that helps to develop and maintain supportive physical and emotional environments and that involve students in personal and collective action (NZ Curriculum).
