  • Live safe, healthy, and enjoyable lives;
  • Grow and develop; not only as individuals, but also as members of society in general;
  • Become fulfilled, productive, and responsible;
  • Form and maintain good relationships;
  • Make a positive difference to their own lives and the lives of others;
  • Clarify their own values and attitudes, and gain knowledge and understanding of those of other people;
  • Build their personal identities and self esteem;


PSHEE covers topics in years 5-8 in increasing depth including:

  • Well being and emotional health;

  • Food and nutrition;
