2. Nutrition – Look at how personal and outside influences can determine the foods a teenager may choose to eat and the impact those foods may have on their health.
3. Change, Loss and Grief – The influence a change in someone’s life can have on their feelings and the way they react in different situations.
4. Interpersonal Relationships – How listening, communication and being assertive can help to resolve problems that can occur in a relationship. 
5. Sexuality Education – Students will look at how community agencies can help teenagers who may have issues or questions around contraception, sexual orientation and unhealthy relationships.
6. Drug Education – The impact that the use of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana has on the user, those around them and the community.
