Crossroads

The Crossroads program is a mandatory personal development and health education course for all year 11 and 12 students in NSW Government schools.

Crossroads aims to introduce discussion and positive choice making for young adults. The 25 hour course focuses on two predominant themes; relationships and drug issues. Crossroads is a course for Years 11 and 12 students. It encourages students to extend and build on the relationship and drug issues outcomes achieved in PD/H/PE in previous years and reflects other contemporary health issues facing young people.

At Doonside Technology High School, we aim to make this course as interactive and practical as possible, ensuring our students achieve the course outcomes in the most beneficial ways. In the past we have invited numerous organisations and guest speakers to present to the student body, ensuring students receive the very best opportunities available.  Organisations such as the Arrive Alive foundation, Positive Life Australia, Blacktown Youth Services Australia, the Blacktown Community Nurse, the Blacktown Police Youth Liaison Officer, Trent’s Driving School and many more have allowed our school to provide the students with an in-depth and broad Crossroads syllabus.
