THE FACULTY OF HEALTH AND WELLBEING
The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing was created in August 2009 by Mr
Anderson our Head Teacher. I was delighted to take up my post in
September of 2009.
Our faculty consists of Physical Education, Home Economics and
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). Within the faculty we are
very lucky to have a hugely experienced team of teachers.
We are very committed to the Health and Wellbeing of our pupils and
staff in Bellahouston Academy. We are a Health Promoting School.
The vision of the Health and Wellbeing Faculty is to improve the mental
and physical health of the pupils in our care. Having Physical Education,
Home Economics and Personal and Social Development in our faculty we
are very well placed to ensure we have integrated experiences between
subjects where the curriculum allows. In PE we are aiming to have all
children active and getting pleasure from being active. We strive to
embed the need for physical exercise for our physical and mental
wellbeing. We aim also to foster an awareness of the outdoors and the
facilities in our locality.
In Home Economics we aim to demonstrate that keeping your body
healthy through your eating habits and lifestyle is vital and we need a
balanced approach. We aim to enable children to prepare things they like
to eat and prepare them for a lifetime of healthy living.
In PSHE we will be taking a holistic approach to physical and mental
well being and covering a very wide range of topics such as fire safety,
bullying, health education topics, the local area, eco matters, school
garden, academic progress, behaviour issues and drug education.
I will be delighted to chat with you anytime on any Health and Wellbeing
