Year 10 Empower Day - Health and Economic Education

Year 10 participated in an informative and enjoyable day relating to the Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) theme of Sex and Relationships, exploring key issues through a variety of workshops and activities.  Using materials produced for young people by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the girls worked through a series of interactive scenarios designed to encourage them to think about Healthy Relationships and sources of advice.  Perhaps the high point of the day was the Interactive Workshop performed by actors from the Upfront Theatre Company, which sought to address some of the myths relating to Sex and Relationships in a light hearted but informative performance with several opportunities for the girls to contribute and discuss their opinions.  The girls took a full and active part in all the activities and their evaluations demonstrated an increase in knowledge and awareness of these issues – crucial for their ongoing personal development and well- being.
