3. Science and Technology

Students will take part in a variety of exercise programmes and describe how the body responds to regular and vigorous physical activity in a range of environments, for example, by describing the effect of aerobics, of circuit training, of extreme cold and heat, and of relaxation on the response of the heart and lungs.

3. Interpersonal Skills

Students will identify the pressures that can influence interactions with other people and demonstrate basic assertiveness strategies to manage these, for example, in relation to pressure from peers, a student's own feelings or physical limits, other people's attitudes and behaviours, whanau, the media, fellow team members, a cultural group, a gender group, or a group of people with specific needs.

Strand D – Healthy Communities and Environments

1. Societal Attitudes and Beliefs
