The Youth Agency have just completed an 8 week long sexual health block with S6 pupils from Forrester High School. After the Covid induced break of the last two years it was fantastic for our staff to be back in the classroom covering these sessions.
These sessions focused on what young people wanted to know, where the felt the gaps in their knowledge were and what they wanted to talk about. As a result, it was a very varied block covering sexual health services, contraception including what to use and when, terminations including the law, how to access a termination and current debates, pornography versus real life and attitudes towards sex and gender.
It was real pleasure working with these young adults and we thank them for their fantastic feedback.
