Year 13 Health Studies

Year 13 Health students have embarked on their year with a deep dive into significant health issues such as Breast Cancer and Infertility. These issues are prevalent in our society and form the basis of an assessment where the students evaluate health practices currently used in New Zealand. Students have been learning about Western Scientific Medicine, Traditional & Cultural Medicine, and Complementary & Alternative Medicine as part of their internal assessment.

Year 13 Health students from Westlake Girls’ and Carmel College had the opportunity to participate in a half-day workshop on Tuesday, 27 February. This workshop offered students a chance to engage in nine different sessions from a variety of practitioners, including General Medicine, Reiki, Yoga, Naturopathy, Physiotherapy, Mindfulness, Reflexology, Rongoā Māori, and Counselling. Many of these treatments were new to our students, making this experience both enlightening and memorable.
