Background

Earlier this year, a national forum discussed relationships and sexuality education in schools as an important form of violence prevention.

Discussion centered on:

  • Schools as platforms for violence prevention work
  • How schools can reduce children’s vulnerability to bullying, emotional violence, violence, sexual abuse and assault
  • Whole of school and community-wide approaches

Participants at the forum requested another event with a longer time frame that is teacher-led.
