School Presentations: Puberty, Sexual Health & Relationships

Being a teenager now is a whole new ballgame.

Imagine if every student in your school understood their inherent worth and value as a human being, if they knew how their body worked and appreciated its incredible design. Imagine if we empowered each student to take care of their body and to make healthy, safe and rewarding choices around their behaviour, relationships and sexuality. Just imagine. 

The solution lies in providing regular, ongoing, thorough sexual education rich in healthy values and embedded with messages of identity, dignity and worth that fosters awareness of young people's rights to feel respected, safe and loved.

Honest conversations around puberty, sex and life.

If we’re not upfront and answering the gritty, real questions our teens have, they seek answers elsewhere. Curiosity often sends them into the unknown online, with serious results.

The stats around pornography exposure are confronting - the average age of first exposure is just 11 years old. In fact, many researchers believe it’s closer to 8 years old. 

Half of all children aged between 9-16 are regularly exposed to sexualised images, and sexting is now considered a normal part of modern-day dating.

All this early exposure without open, honest guidance has consequences: two-thirds of teens regret their first sexual experience. Instead of scaring or shaming, we want to inform and empower.

Our school presentations tackle these tricky questions head on, minus the cringe, but with warmth and compassion. We’re honest, upfront and address the big issues that help them understand and appreciate their bodies and protect their hearts.

The cultural landscape has changed, and our young people need truth, clarity, facts, encouragement, and goodness like never before.

"Emma is a highly engaging and knowledgeable speaker who we have had the privilege of having present to our Year 7 and 8 students. Covering topics that included body image, puberty and health, Emma addressed many issues that our young girls face in an age appropriate and relevant way, making them feel comfortable to engage with the activities, and opening up avenues for continued discussion around these topics. The students said that they found the session informative and fun, and they really appreciated all the practical advice that Emma gave. I would highly recommend Emma as a guest speaker and the Pippin Girl resources for use with Middle and Senior School students.”

Jessica Ley | Dean of Year 8 Emmanuel College

"Emma delivers the material in a beautifully relatable yet knowledgeable way. All the science your child needs, packaged within a down to earth , warm, and supported framework. She also packs in a lot of helpful tips and hacks as this wonderful growth period approaches. This is the course all children need in order to glide through this beautifully bumpy and miraculous season of their life with ease and grace."

Jo Espie | Clinical Psychologist (Seed Clinical Psychology)

"Thank you so much for being "real" with our students. They connected to your stories, and we have only had positive feedback from staff and students. Even some boys saying, "That wasn't half bad sir" which is a positive comment from a teenage boy!"

Dino Arraiol | Head of Wellbeing & Community - Calvary Christian College

"Thank you so much for coming to my child's school this week. She came home raving about you. She was encouraged by how you discussed the topics with such ease. Thank you for doing what you do, how you do it and reinforcing what we teach at home. It was great for her to hear what we say from someone different." 

Sarah | Parent of a Year 8 student

"Emma, I cannot stop raving about your engaging, professional, funny and I loved how scientific it was too!"

Leonie Riley – Director of Pastoral Care Emmanuel College
