Reply To: Module 3 – Global Inequality

The goal I have chosen is no.3 good health and well being. This goal aims to ensure healthy lives and promote well being for all at all ages. It is no surprise that after the global pandemic, many schools have turned their attention to well being and made this the focus of their SSE. The students in our primary schools have spent a good fraction of their lives in and out of lockdowns, families were under drastically increased pressures and media updates often portrayed scary events globally. It is unknown what kind of lasting impact this could have on some children. However on the other hand, children learned a lot from the events of the past 3 years and the opportunity is there for educators to capitalise on this. Notably, students have learned about inter dependency in taking care of each other both in terms of physical and mental health which I believe allows for more open discussion on these subjects. This gives us scope to tackle some of the prominent health issues nationally including obesity and mental health.
