What F4L Offers
Here are some of the things the students have said about the Facts4Life Programme
I just loved that I saw how my body worked. I was just confused about how it worked before… because, like, I was wondering how all the blood went round and what made the heart go…I was getting confused and I just wanted to see it, like, real.
Lessons are always really exciting because … you know that it’s going to help you in your future life.
When we learnt about the drugs and the alcohol lesson that was really interesting because it makes you aware of what they can do to your body and especially the alcohol that can damage your body even though you just have a small amount. [I’m aware] of all the side effects that could happen if you take any risks.
I never knew there was such thing as mental illness.
When we did the healthy body thing, when we had to label everything in our body, it made me think twice about sugar levels because you are not going to have a very healthy body if you eat too much junk [or] too much sugar.
It’s [interactive teaching and learning] made me more enthusiastic with my learning.
Well, I thought that science was just making things like systems and finding out something. I didn’t know that it could be fun the same time as serious. So it kind of made me more confident with science.
I feel like I really wanted to know what’s happening in my body. I was, like, ‘What’s happening? Is my brain thinking? Is my heart pumping? What’s it doing?!’ I learned that it’s always working, every single day.
