Level 2 Food and Nutrition
Teacher in Charge: Mr P. McAllister
Students will explore the nutritional needs of teenage athletes and give recommendations of areas they can improve their nutrition to enhance their performance. Students will also analyse ways in which the environment and the well-being of an individual and community are affected by changing values, attitudes, beliefs, and technological innovation.
There is a practical component to this course that allows students to practice skills and experiment with various ingredients in order to secure a variety of safe, affordable, and nutritious meals. This course will develop students’ ability to evaluate information, make informed decisions, and use interpersonal skills effectively.
This course has used Level 7 achievement objectives of the Health and Physical Education curriculum.

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
