This year, our High School students, from Class 7 to Year 11, will be engaged in a series of wellbeing programs, starting with a Talking Consent Workshop by Jane McGowen in Term 1.
During the workshop students will be focussing on the understanding, defining, and negotiating of consent. This sensitive information will be delivered in a facilitated environment of cohesion and positivity. The workshop is designed so that young people should feel empowered to seek healthy relationships and look after each other, whilst also understanding and identifying risks. In addition, the aim is for students to become more self-aware so that they may have a sense of preparedness as they grow and change.
The understanding and knowledge provided by Jane's workshop will be utilised consistently and frequently in both Guardian time and the classroom. Jane will also be sharing the program with parents and carers, via a Zoom information session, details of which will be provided.
In Terms 2 to 4, students will be engaging in programs on social interactions and bullying, social media safety and becoming familiar with the law.
