Teaching relationships and puberty to grades 3-6
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.
