Community Education

Since 2001 The Pregnancy Centre has been partnering with community groups and local Public and Catholic schools. We offer 5 unique presentations targeted to students in grades 7 through 12. The goal of these presentations is to educate and challenge students on matters of sexual health, sexual decision-making and healthy relationships. Each presentation meets the requirements of the Ontario Curriculum for Health and Physical Education and is presented in an unbiased and engaging manner.

The presentations are delivered by Katrina Davidson, the Centre’s Community Education Director. Topics addressed include: decision-making, sexually transmitted infections, methods of contraception (including the option of choosing to wait), sexting, consent, healthy relationships, pregnancy, and awareness of community support services. If you would like more information about our presentations, to meet Katrina or to book a presentation for your class or community group, please Contact Katrina today.

OUR PRESENTATIONS

Focuses on relationships and communication. It also addresses the risks of sexual activity and provides students the opportunity to think about different reasons for delaying sexual activity.*

IT’S COMPLICATED: RELATIONSHIP SPARKS & STATUSES // GRADE 9

TEACHERS SAY…

I like that a wide variety of topics are covered. I like that there are opportunities for students to ask questions. The topics are relatable to teenagers. There are stories thrown in that provide context for the students.

The individual class presentations are excellent! They are appropriate and interactive. The presentation gives the students information to enable them to make their own knowledgeable choices. Students feel comfortable discussing these issues without embarrassment.

Awesome work today – some really great information! I loved your conversational presentation style and your honesty in presenting this important information.  I know the students learned today and were forced to reflect on key decisions that they will have to make in the near future.  And that makes today a good day in education!

STUDENTS SAY…

Thanks for being so open about something people can be so afraid to talk about.

 

Thank you so much for your inspiring presentation!

 

Thank you for listening and teaching us.
