HEALTH

The purpose of this page is to post ideas and lesson frameworks from our Health lessons so that parents can engage students at home in related health conversations.

WITS

Key ideas:

  • We face challenges in life.

  • We can move through challenges more effectively when we use our WITS.

WITS Strategy Framework:

W = Walk away

I = Ignore

T = Talk it out

S = Seek help (from trusted adults: parents, teachers, coaches, nurses at Brentwood's Maeda Health Centre)

The WITS strategy is not linear. That is, one uses the letter, or combination of letters, that works best in a particular challenge. For example, a person might ignore someone saying mean things while they walk away to seek help from a teacher. Or that person might talk it out with the person saying mean things and move through the challenge that way.
