Read the scenario and complete all ten pages of the assessment activity that I have attached and answer each question (1A-4C). Each page should have roughly 200 + words. This would equal about 2000 words in total and I have payed for 1925 words which I hope is sufficient. Notice what the assessment requirements are to achieve merit and excellence at the front of the assessment activity and aim to achieve excellence. When the assessment activity refers to ‘ the four dimensions of hauora’ this means: the four dimensions of health which are spiritual, physical, social and mental and emotional health. I have also attached a workbook that a student would normally do before attempting the assessment, and it may be of assistance to you to flick through it quickly to familiarize yourself with the 4 ‘dimensions of hauora’. An example of the hauora model can be found on page 16 of the workbook. These are examples of the different aspects of the 4 dimensions of hauora.
