Panel Discussion: Role of schools in child and youth health and wellbeing

October 30, 2015 at 8:54 AM

What is the role of schools in child and youth health and wellbeing? - Panel discussion - Auckland - 30 Oct 2015


When: Friday 30 October 2015, 4-5.30pm

Where: J2, Epsom Campus, 74 Epsom Avenue, Epsom, Auckland

Organised by the School of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Auckland

Free, All welcome.

The School of Curriculum and Pedagogy, University of Auckland invites you to a panel discussion.

Given the pressure on schools to deliver on academic and achievement goals, what is the role of schools in also addressing concerns of health and wellbeing? Schools are frequently discussed in media and popular discourse as the place to address issues as diverse and complex as teenage sexuality, depression, drug and alcohol-related behaviours, violence, eating patterns, text and online bullying, and physical activity levels. Is it really the role of schools to address these issues and, if so, what approaches should be taken and what issues need to be considered?

The scholars, teachers and students on this panel all work on issues related to health, schooling and young people. They offer different perspectives on this question and bring a diversity of approaches to research, theory and practice.

All welcome to attend. Drinks and nibbles to follow.

Chair: Associate Professor Katie Fitzpatrick (University of Auckland)

Discussant: Professor Richard Tinning (University of Queensland: UQ)
