    Ways in which parents can help:

    Learning from real-life experiences is central to personal and social development. Health and Wellbeing sessions help learners to access balanced factual information from a range of sources, and enable them to become more aware of alternative viewpoints. Health and Wellbeing provides excellent opportunities for learners to discuss local and global contemporary issues.
