Formerly Understanding Sexuality
This four day course formerly known as Understanding Sexuality is designed to help teachers adopt positive attitudes towards sexuality and gain insight and understanding of the Catholic Church’s teachings in this area. The New Zealand Catholic Bishop’s Conference in 1991 called all teachers to put forward the Church’s teaching in a “positive and convincing manner”.
They go on to say; “ The greatest hope for our young people of developing a happy and sound sexual life will come from a capacity to love and accept themselves, and others, warmly and openly… this must begin in the family. It must be supported and developed in the school.”
Monica Stowers is the Having Life to the Full course co-ordinator. Her role is to support schools develop healthy and positive sexuality education programmes that are in keeping with our Catholic Character.
