We have a number of options in relation to student workshops for Years 7 to 12.

Content includes, but is not restricted to:
- Sexual ethics
- Sexual consent
- Being an ethical bystander
- Sexting and cybersafety
We can also run programs for students where English is a second language or, with consultation, we will develop a program specific to your students.
