Check out the NEW Physical and Health Education Curriculum for September, 2016.
Sexual Health Education is now a part of the P.E. program and will be taught by your child’s PE teacher or an outside provider, a Certified Sexual Health Educator.
Body Smart: ‘Right from the Start’ (0-Grade 4)
Parents have so many questions regarding Sexual Health: “Is it okay for our daughter and her dad to bathe together? For how long? Is that your wee-wee or your penis? Your who-who or your vulva? Can I kiss you on the lips?”
It’s never too early to start preparing for some important discussions around sexual health. With up-to-date information and the right tools, awkward conversations can be opportunities to develop open communication with your child. These on-going conversations will support your child to develop a strong sense of self and to develop awareness of personal boundaries.

Body Smart: From Child to Teen (Grade 4-7)
Puberty can be a scary and challenging time without prior knowledge. As a parent, you have the amazing opportunity to make puberty a fun and exciting time for your pre-teen/teen. Our young people CAN learn to be open and confident with these sensitive topics.
This workshop will provide a FUN and RELAXED atmosphere where parents can increase their knowledge, motivation and skills to help young people achieve optimal sexual health.
Parent only and parent with pre-teen/teen options available.

Body Smart: Teen Decision-Making (Grade 8-12)
When parents talk openly and honestly about sexuality, teens will have the comfort, knowledge and support they need to achieve healthy sexual lives.
As a parent/guardian, you have the unique opportunity to help guide decision-making in the teen years. Once we have built a solid foundation of trust and communication, our teens will be able to discuss topics such as gender, sexual orientation, sexting, pornography, condom negotiation, the effects of alcohol on decision-making, etc.
With fun and meaningful discussions our teens can learn to be open and confident with these sensitive topics.
Bring your teen or come alone. This workshop will be entertaining, engaging and informative.
More so than ever before, parents need to keep up-to-date with current issues in sexual health education. This 2 hour workshop will provide parents, caregivers, counsellors, child and youth care workers and other interested community members a peak into the challenges many youth face today. Specific topics will include consent, sexual harassment, the legal and social implications of sexting, gender violence, sexual fluidity and the long-term impacts of pornography.
This workshop is also available to be purchased by individuals, schools, or school districts. Schools/School Districts may hire Kerri to give a live workshop, or she is available to ‘Skype’ in for a 60 minute Q&A after viewing of the video.
