SHS Health Education
The Shrewsbury High School Comprehensive Health Curriculum...
Is designed to teach students the necessary health skills and functional knowledge needed to actively and intentionally take ownership of all aspects of their well-being and ultimately nurture optimal health. Through teaching health skills within the 8 dimensions of health (Social, Physical, Emotional & Mental, Intellectual, Financial, Occupational, Spiritual, and Environmental), students are able to learn about the interconnectedness of health. Here are afew examples:
*When we feel connected and that we belong our confidence and happiness levels boost, and we feel safe and secure (Social and Emotional Mental Health).
*Your meaning and purpose (Spiritual Health) connect to what you study (Intellectual Health), what career you choose (Occupational Health), how you spend your money (Financial Health), and who you spend time with (Social Health).
*Learning how to deal with social conflict (Social Health) is key to achieving work or school success (Occupational Health). Social friction is inevitable in the life, but when we develop strong social skills, we are better prepared to navigate these difficult situations and suceed.
