On Tuesday, 3rd March 2015, Year 11 students undertaking Health and Human Development went on an excursion to the Rivoli Village Cinemas to watch the film ‘’That Sugar Film” based on one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves.
After the film students met with Damon Gameau and he relived his journey by answering questions about the film, which will benefit our understanding in class and own personal health journey. The Year 11 students were very privileged to experience this opportunity and are very thankful of Miss Bell for the time taken to organise this excursion.
