Healthy Sexuality Educator Resources

Educators and schools are in a unique position to help students develop Living Skills; the assets they need to have a positive sense of self, form healthy relationships and become skilled in understanding information, solve problems and make responsible decisions. Talking to your students about sexuality enables them to grow into sexually healthy adults.

The Healthy Sexuality Educator Resources have been developed to support educators to meet sexual health and human development themes found in the Ontario Health & Physical Education 2015 curriculum. These resources have been designed to support the Living Skills component of the curriculum by incorporating Personal Skills (PS), Interpersonal Skills (IS), and Critical Creative Thinking (CT) into the activities.

Personal Skills (PS)

Students will learn to understand and recognize their individual strengths and capabilities and will begin to take responsibility for their learning and their actions. Students are encouraged to consider beliefs, attitudes and values and then make connections to their personal lives.

Interpersonal Skills (IS)

Students will practice social skills by interacting and communicating within a safe classroom. Communication with peers, at home with caregivers and other helping adults is encouraged to help form healthy relationships.

Critical and Creative Thinking (CT)

Through activities and discussion, students are provided with accurate information. Students have opportunities to practice critically thinking to a variety of scenarios and be aware of how to access reliable information and services in the community to support their personal wellbeing.

To access these resources and for more ways to offer an integrated approach to healthy living in your school, contact your Healthy Schools Public Health Nurse.
