We will soon begin a meaningful unit in the health education curriculum entitled Family Life and Human Sexuality. Due to the sensitive nature of this instruction, students may be excused from this unit of the program upon a written request from you, the parent.
Below you will find a list of the outcomes for this unit:
- Outcome USC8.3
Investigate and analyze the impact of in/formal supports and services (including testing/diagnostic services) available to individuals, families, and communities infected with/affected by non-curable infections/diseases (including HIV and Hepatitis C
- Outcome USC8.7
Assess the social, cultural, and environmental influences on and supports for sexual health knowledge, attitudes, behaviours, and decisions
- Outcome DM8.8
Appraise the role of “support” in making healthy decisions related to family roles and responsibilities, non-curable infections/diseases, violence and abuse, body image, sustainability, and sexual health
Any student who has been excused from Family Life Human Sexuality instruction will be provided with an independent alternative, Health Education Enrichment unit or another activity mutually agreed upon by the student and family. The length of time spent on the alternate lessons will be the same number of days as will be spent on the unit.
