Learning Intention

To inform and create awareness of the content we teach in Health at Greater Shepparton Secondary College and why we teach it for our school community.

Why we teach this content

The Victorian Curriculum informs us of what to teach. We use this information to determine the content areas of Health we teach in schools. Examples of which we use to teach our content relate to:

  • Respectful Relationships
  • Sexuality (Safe Schools)
  • Safety

The Department of Education and Greater Shepparton Secondary College have policies that help to inform us of the relevant health content to be taught in the Health Curriculum.

Sexuality education is an essential curriculum component of the Victorian Essential Learning Standards. Teachers assess student achievement against the learning standards within the Health and Physical Education domain.
