Food and Health

It is important that we should all know what to do if someone near us is injured or suddenly unwell.  In this module, you will spend two sessions with one of the school nurses learning some basic first aid skills.

It is also important of course that we know how to look after ourselves, and in the other two sessions you will be finding out more about food and diet.  This will involve using information technology, and cooking and eating.
