On Thursday, 23 June Mindarie Senior College hosted the ninth Community Health Expo. This event was hosted by the Year 11 Health Studies students and attended by all staff and students.

The atrium was transformed into a vibrant setting for the community agencies who set up displays and ran interactive activities to showcase facilities and services available within the community for young adults. This was a fantastic opportunity Health Studies students to be actively involved in contributing to and running a health promotion event.  In preparation for the expo the students were involved in researching and designing display boards to increase awareness of current health issues affecting teenagers.  These boards were featured at the Health Expo and are displayed in the College atrium to reinforce awareness of these health issues.

The event was a huge success with all students spending time and gaining valuable knowledge from the various organisations such as; RAC, WA AIDS Council, ECU, Headspace and many more. We would like to thank all Year 11 Health Studies students for their hard work in preparing for the event and all staff who assisted ensuring that the event ran smoothly.
