Supplementary Workshops

Respectful relationships, overexposed & under prepared

A session looking at what it means to have consenting, healthy and respectful relationships.

Current research is showing that children who view inappropriate online (including violent and/or pornographic) material are at risk of harm to their psychological development and mental health at a critical time in their development. The younger the age of first exposure, the more profound these effects can be in shaping who a child becomes as an adult.

Sex offences by school-aged children have quadrupled in Australia in only four years.

Internet Safety, Social Media and Sexting

This session helps students identify and develop skills that are required for their online safety. It relates to the importance of maintaining respectful relationships and practising consent when using social media. It also looks at what 'sexting' is and helps students understand the legal consequences of this practice.

Friendships, Conflict and Stress

A session that equips students with a survival kit of skills required to build /make successful, healthy, friendships/relationships, as well as strategies for resilience, coping with stress and conflict.

Mission Australia (2021) surveyed 30,000 young people between the ages of 11 and 24 years.

Two of the highest ranked issues that worried them were family conflict and coping with stress.
