Central Highlands Rural Health is pleased to offer local primary schools a comprehensive Puberty Education program for grade 5 & 6 students.
Entering puberty can be a difficult time for young people to navigate both the physical and emotional changes. The Puberty Education program provides important health knowledge to students and builds a shared understanding of the changes associated with puberty.
The program has been developed in accordance with the Victorian Curriculum and Respectful Relationships Program and includes evidence based information and resources, many sourced from Family Planning Victoria . The program also links in nicely with the Achievement Program and helping to fulfill the Sexual Health and Wellbeing priority area.
The program is facilitated by a qualified teacher and Health Promotion Practitioner.
