Health education is an important part of our total school curriculum and is usually integrated into either our science or physical education classes. God has blessed us with a variety of physical attributes and abilities. While not all attributes are the same, students should appreciate the good health and abilities that God has given to them. Students are given the opportunity to learn and celebrate the physical characteristics that make them unique creations of God. They also learn good health habits and understand how to take care of themselves in a God-pleasing manner.
