Primary Programs

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.

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.

SEA values diversity and respect for all. We have experience in, and understanding of, the different expectations of families and communities. We can deliver programs in faith-based schools, to LGBQTI groups, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups, and students of all abilities.

It was a superb program. The students were engaged, comfortable and supported throughout the program. They were valued and any misconceptions were handled respectfully. The class was exceptionally well managed and each child engaged with the content in their own way – some happy to answer every question and others happy to simply listen. The pace, structure and delivery of the program kept the students learning and thinking at all times.  Year 5 teacher — Camberwell Grammar School

We highly recommend this program. The SEA teachers were able to easily connect and build rapport with all students. Each session was engaging and addressed any ‘tricky’ content with ease, maturity and relevance, which made everyone feel comfortable. The students responded positively and sensibly, enjoying activities and various appropriate resources.
