Alcohol was identified by students as the most interesting topic, followed in order by puberty, drugs, drunkenness, smoking, fighting, general health, body image, physical and emotional health, happiness and friendships. Participating students indicated a broad interest in these topics and volunteered many specific questions that could be addressed through health education or health media. Overall this research provided children with the opportunity to explore their own priorities in relation to the information gathered through the HBSC survey. The data presented here could be used to guide curricular resource and other materials development in child and adolescent health promotion.
