Annual General Meeting

Our (rather late) 2016/2017 Annual General Meeting is coming up!

SAVE THE DATE: Thursday 19 April 2018, 6.30pm to 8.30pm

We are delighted to invite you to join us at our annual general meeting followed by a lively discussion and Q&A session on “Raising Sexually Health Kids” presented by Jenny Walsh.

Jenny is a Melbourne-based author, teacher, parent and developer of sexuality education for primary and secondary students. Jenny has written research-based curriculum resources, trained teachers for many years and regularly talks with parent groups. Jenny has also worked closely with LGBTI young people and rainbow families in her previous work through the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society over many years.

Her excellent resource development includes “Talk soon talk often” – a guide for parents talking to their kids about sex” commissioned by the WA Department of Health and “Catching on early – teaching and learning activities from prep to Year 6” is an evidence-based resource founded on research into sexuality education and child sexual development commissioned by the Department of Education and Early Childhood, Victorian Government in 2013.

Jenny definitely knows her stuff, has lots of experience working with rainbow families and LGBTI young people, and we are delighted to have her present at the AGM.
