Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Kelly

Our Junior Health Programme strives to develop better men and give them the tools to make informed decisions around current teenage issues as well as providing a good foundation of Physical Education theoretical Knowledge. We do this through a ‘Learning Through Doing’ approach as often as possible, to maximise boys engagement. 

Our primary focus is to develop ‘Goodman Values’ where students are taught, and given opportunities to develop, a range of personal qualities that will enable them to lead positive and productive lives.

We also address relevant teenage topics, that our young men will be increasingly exposed to, as they begin their teenage years. We give them the tools to make informed decisions, and positive choices, in a modern world.
