Sexuality education: Key concepts

To develop positive attitudes towards their sexuality, students need to:

  • know about and understand the physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual growth and development that will occur and the new needs that will arise during puberty;
  • examine the factors influencing their choices during puberty;
  • develop a positive attitude towards the changes they experience during puberty.
