Health and Family Life Education:
Student's Book 3 (Grade 9)

Health and Family Life Education is an exciting new course for Caribbean secondary schools. It addresses the needs of lower secondary students and teachers for a life-skills based course reflecting the CARICOM Regional Curriculum Framework document but also takes into account national syllabuses, such as those from Jamaica, Belize and Trinidad. 

Health and Family Life Education
meets the challenges facing Caribbean societies today, such as the HIV and AIDS epidemic, rising levels of violence, health and environmental problems.

Each Student’s Book contains approximately enough material for one 45 minute lesson per week over a year and each lesson takes a double-page spread for easy use. The course can be used within dedicated Health and Family Life Education subject lessons or more flexibly when HFLE is integrated within other subjects, or with Form groups, Guidance and Counselling lessons or after school clubs.

·     The course is interactive and participatory, using mini-stories, case studies and other stimulus material to build on students’ own experience and encourage

            them to take an active role in their communities

·     Builds healthy attitudes, motivation, values and life skills as well as teaching information, to enable students to better cope with the complex world in which they will operate as adults

·     There are four distinct themes or strands which are found in each of the three years: Self and Interpersonal Relationships, Sexuality and

            Sexual Health, Appropriate Eating and Fitness and 

            Managing the Environment

·     The material in each year builds upon what has been

            done earlier, carefully structured to develop

            appropriate life skills through interactive, self-

            discovery learning.
