We utilise a shared planning approach with schools to create individualised lessons to suit the needs of tamariki. Our teaching strands have been developed based on the four key challenges that tamariki face to their health and wellbeing while growing up. Our teaching could cover content across five key strands: identity and resilience, relationships and communities, food and nutrition, human biology, and substances.
