Transcript of My Proclamation
My name is Liam Kennedy and I'm 14 years old. I was born on October 19, 2000 and I am a grade 9 student at Iroquois Ridge High School. I am 5'2 and weigh 83 pounds! I live in Oakville, Ontario with my mother, Manon, my father, Mike, and my brother, Declan. I'm very athletic and energetic.
I play many sports, such as hockey, soccer, and snowboarding. My favourite sport is snowboarding. I go snowboarding about once a week at Glen Eden. Some of my hobbies include hanging out with friends, playing video games, and watching TV. My favourite TV shows are The Walking Dead, Family Guy, Modern Family, and Sherlock. I've learned many things in health class this year, such as substance abuse and the effects of illegal substances.
Substance Use and Abuse
Using illegal substances is not a smart thing to do. Once you try an illegal substance, you can easily get addicted and you won't be able to quit. Illegal substances can ruin friendships and relationships, and sometimes your whole life. An example of this is Alyson from the show "Intervention" that we watched in class. Alyson got hooked on Morphine, Heroin, and Crack, and couldn't stop. Her dying need of these substances affects her family and everyone around her. A few different kinds of substances are: Stimulants, Depressants, Hallucinogens, Cannabis, Anabolic Steroids, Alcohol, and Tobacco.
Substance Use and How It Applies To Me
Most people who try illegal substances lack many of the 40 developmental assets, such as Alyson. Alyson had an absence of many assets; such as family support, self esteem, sense of purpose, and positive view of personal future (just to name a few). I had a score of 37/40, which means I have a lot of support from my family and friends. I think this is one of the main reasons that I haven't/won't use illegal substances.
Fitness and Goal Setting
In this unit, I've learned that staying fit and setting goals are both very important in life. If you stay fit, you will be more healthy and less likely to get certain medical conditions, not to mention you'll look better. Setting goals will help you with a lot of different things. Without a goal, you won't get anywhere. If you set a goal for yourself, you'll strive to succeed and reach your goal. When you've reached that goal, you can even set a higher goal and reach that one too. Whether your goal is something small like remembering to take out the garbage in the morning, or something big like working hard and getting promoted, goals will help you reach new things in life.
Healthy Sexuality and Personal Safety
This semester, I've been taught that the two main factors that will make someone feel unsafe are abuse and violence. The two main causes of abuse and violence are control and power. So if someone is bullying you or making you feel unsafe, there are two things you must know. 1: Never let the person have
over you. Once someone has control over you, they'll get inside your head. 2: The person must never have
over you. Once they have power over you, it makes their job as a bully easier to harass you and get physical. Follow these steps, and you should remain safe.
I've learned a lot in the Grade 9 Phys. Ed course this year, including how to stay safe, how to resolve conflicts properly, how healthy it is to stay fit, how important setting goals is, and that I'm never going to use an illegal substance! Thank you Mr. Coe for making this course such a memorable experience and I hope to take Physical Education next year as well! :)
THANK YOU MR. COE!

Conflict is like an argument or disagreement. It could be between anyone; friends, family, dating partners. Many things can lead to conflict between teenagers and their parents, such as curfews, getting grounded, and getting their phone taken away. There's conflict between friends too, some reasons why include: not being put first, and not hanging out as much as they used to. Males and females usually handle conflicts differently; females tend to start rumours about the other person, where as males tend to get physical and use violence. This isn't the way conflicts should be handled. Personally, I feel that the people who have a conflict should sort it out by talking to the other person, and trying to understand the other persons side. When these methods are being used, conflicts tend to resolve, and the people can be friends again.
