PRIMARY

SEA works with schools to deliver comprehensive health and human development programs in the classroom. The Victorian Department of Education policy guidelines state that sex education is compulsory for school students from Prep (Foundation) to Year 10. SEA’s programs are devised in accordance with the Victorian Curriculum. Our sessions are clear and direct. We provide key messages that young people can take away from our sessions to help them with their decision-making.

PRIMARY LIVING & GROWING PROGRAMS

At the primary level, quality sex education programs have been shown to:

  • help increase children’s personal safety
  • help increase children’s confidence and self-esteem
  • support children to make healthy decisions as they grow older

SEA delivers programs for students from Prep to Year 6.
