In light of research conducted around sexuality education, Family Planning Victoria has developed a suite of comprehensive sessions that align with the Victorian Curriculum levels and incorporate best teaching practice. The following menu has been designed to allow schools to put to together a session/s that best suits their own timetable and students’ needs.

It is recommended that:

  • the maximum number of students in a session is 26-27
  • sessions are preferably 1.5 hours (please alert at time of booking if an alternative time is preferred.)

Each session will include information, activities, values clarification and an opportunity for students to ask questions. We offer extension activities that can be used by classroom teachers to consolidate learning.
