COMPREHENSIVE SEXUALITY EDUCATION

A two-day sexuality education workshop was organized for teachers of Presidium Senior Secondary School on 24th and 25th of January to understand the various aspects of sexual education in school. The meet was presided over by TARSHI (Talking about Reproductive and Sexual Health Issues) which works on creating a broader public understanding about reproductive and sexual health issues. The workshop aimed at providing comprehensive sexuality education to teachers so that the teachers are trained to organize and answer various queries or concerns of students in school. As a part of Presidium Life Skills Curriculum which lays special emphasis on becoming ‘Champions of Change’, it was essential for teachers to understand the skills of handling these changes in the student.

Discussions on day- one began with expectation setting round, where questions and aspects related to sexuality were delved into. It was followed by brainstorming session where words associated with sexuality were identified and talked about. This exercise was performed in order to arrive at a common definition of sexuality. Further, members of TARSHI explained to teachers about sexual orientation and why it shouldn’t be the basis of defining a person’s personality. Several other related doubts were also clarified by the group. At the end of the day, teachers were presented with the ‘orange book’, which is a teacher’s workbook on sexuality. Out of 28 exercises mentioned in the book, teachers performed one. It educated them that sexuality is related to health, psychological, biological as well as social aspect.

On day-two, discussions concentrated on providing sexual education to youngsters. Teachers were given tips on – how to talk about sexuality with teenage students? They also explained importance and role of school in acknowledging sexual education as an important part of school’s curriculum. Also, explained the need of inviting experts and external agencies to conduct regular and on-going sexuality education sessions with various age-group / classes.

To sum it up, workshop was well designed and it dealt with almost all related issues. It proved to be very insightful for teachers, who are empowered to guide students on the subject.
