There are four areas of study in the Healthy Living Program (Health) at every grade level: Healthy Eating, Substance Use & Abuse, Personal Safety and Injury Prevention, and Growth and Development.

In Grade 7, our third unit of study will be on Substance Use and Abuse. According to the expectations of the Ontario Curriculum:


Students will outline a variety of issues related to substance use and abuse (e.g., the effects of second hand smoke; the impact of laws governing drug use, including the use of tobacco and alcohol). They will identify and categorize drugs as stimulants, depressants, and hallucinogens. They will also apply and demonstrate decision-making strategies that can be used to counter pressures to smoke, drink, and take drugs. They will apply a decision-making process to make informed choices regarding drug use, and identify healthy alternatives to drug use.
