At Fairfield Intermediate, the Health and PE curriculum is combined with the Technology curriculum to form the specialist subject of Hauora. In this subject, students will develop an understanding of hauora (wellbeing), lifestyle factors that impact hauora and ways of being responsible for their own hauora.
Students will be able to define the four areas of hauora -taha wairua, taha hinengaro, taha tinana, and taha whānau and how each one influences and supports the others. Students will discover how products are produced and how ingredients can be manipulated to achieve specific outcomes. As knowledge develops, students will be able to adapt recipes to include healthier alternatives, recognising why their choice is a healthier option.
