Fully Alive

Family Life Education, as it is represented in Fully Alive, is intended to pass on a distinctively Catholic view of human life, sexuality, marriage, and family. Its goal is to complement the efforts of families and to support what parents are doing at home. The entire program, from Grades 1 through Grade 8 is designed to encourage children to become the people God wants them to be -- to be fully alive. 

Additional resources/links:

ReCAPP- Resource Centre for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention.

This is a US based website that provides information to educators to consider when teaching young children (K-3) to avoid binary language that might alienate a child who may not identify as male or female and/or children who may be struggling with gender identity.

BCTF- British Colombia Teacher’s Federation

This document produced by the BCTF provides a quick Q&A for teachers to assist teachers with using gender neutral language in the classroom.  It is a way of speaking that minimizes assumptions about gender, sexual orientation or the biological sex of the people being referred to.
