Positive Health at Timbertop focuses on the importance of physical, mental and sexual health and wellbeing. Throughout the year, students participate in a range of Positive Health sessions, from small-group activities to whole-school events. The scope and sequence of the Positive Health programme at Timbertop is aligned with the Victorian Curriculum. Students learn about gender and sexuality, puberty, healthy relationships, consent, contraception, the issues surrounding pornography and safe partying. The programme is designed so that students leave Timbertop with a greater understanding of their rights and responsibilities as a young person. All topics are explored in a sensitive manner, so that our students are equipped with accurate and age-appropriate information as they navigate their adolescent years.
