An important part of the Year 6 Health curriculum includes ‘puberty talks’. Due to the sensitive nature of this topic the school believes your child deserves to have it delivered by a qualified Health Professional with experience in this area. In order to deliver this quality programme we request a contribution of $17.00 which we encourage you to pay through your Kindo account by clicking here.
The two sessions of at least an hour each (taken by Heather Cave from ‘Puberty Matters’) commence for some classes on Thursday 18th February and for other classes in subsequent days. We have received positive feedback from past families about the way these sessions have been presented in previous years. This will cover bodily and emotional changes that take place during puberty. If this is not a topic that you have discussed yet with your child, it would be helpful if they had a general idea of these changes and the body part names to prepare them for this learning.
Boys and girls will be grouped separately to allow more opportunities for discussion and questioning. Students will receive a booklet at the end of the sessions to take home so that learning can continue with parents.
This is a compulsory part of the curriculum that your child needs to attend.
If you have any questions relating to these sessions please contact your child’s teacher.
