Whether you call it puberty education, sexuality formation, PDHPE or religious education no area is more precious and sensitive than helping young people navigate this special time of life. Over the last decade Things Are Changing has helped tens of thousands of primary age students, teachers and their parents explore this crucial time of transition and growth.
So why is Things Are Changing the choice of so many Christian and Catholic schools? Put simply it’s because it is based in a deep and rich understanding of key Christian concepts such as the value and dignity of the human person as made in the image of God, an understanding of sex education being about an ‘education in and for love’ and a deep respect for the role of parents as primary educators of their own children.
Things Are Changing is now being released as an ultra-modern, fully online program designed to help every school support parents in this important task. The online program comes complete with online DVD content, a facilitators manual and access to parent support materials as well as workbooks for the student themselves.
