Teaching Relationships & Puberty to Grades 3-6 | 2020

Teaching Relationships and Puberty

The goal of Teaching Relationships and Puberty in Grades 3-6 is to increase teachers' skills and confidence in delivering sexuality and relationships education in primary schools. As ‘sexuality’ and ‘relationships’ is a focus area in the Australia Health and Physical Education Curriculum (Australia Curriculum, 2018), teachers must deliver this content in schools.

Teaching Relationships and Puberty in Grades 3-6 is designed to support teachers in delivering this content to a high standard, fulfilling curriculum requirements and contributing to educating a generation of sexually healthy adults. 

The program focuses on:

  • Child sexual development
  • The changes of puberty – physical, social and emotional
  • Communication skills to teach students about relationships and protective behaviours
  • Responding to challenging behaviours in the classroom
  • Answering difficult questions


In 2020, Teaching Relationships and Sexuality in Secondary Schools will run on the following dates:


SHFAPCT Training Room
Sexual Health & Family Planning ACT
Level 1, 28 University Avenue, Canberra City, ACT

*Note: If schools would like multiple members of staff trained, we are happy to provide the training ‘in house’ at schools.


The cost is $250 per participant.

*Note: A discount is available if 5 or more staff members attend from one school. Cost does not include Eventbrite fees.
