Teaching relationships and puberty to grades 3-6

The goal of Teaching Relationships and Puberty in Grades 3-6 is to increase teachers’ skills and confidence in delivering sexuality and relationships education in primary schools. As ‘sexuality’ and ‘relationships’ is a focus area in the Australia Health and Physical Education Curriculum (Australia Curriculum, 2018), teachers must deliver this content in schools.

Teaching Relationships and Puberty in Grades 3-6 is designed to support teachers in delivering this content to a high standard, fulfilling curriculum requirements and contributing to educating a generation of sexually healthy adults. 

WHAT YOU"LL LEARN

  • Child sexual development
  • The changes of puberty: physical, social and emotional
  • Communication skills to teach students about relationships and protective behaviours
  • Responding to challenging behaviours in the classroom
  • Answering difficult questions

Please note training will take place online if SHFPACT staff are unable to deliver face to face training.
