The AMAZING ME programs support the education outcomes in any state and can be easily used to support an already existing curriculum in any school.
The AMAZING ME presentations can be flexible and can be modified to suit the specific needs of your school community and target audience.
All of the AMAZING ME programs work towards reinforcing the important message that we are all incredible, different, diverse yet AMAZING!
AMAZING ME programs support Stage 2 and Stage 3 NSW NESA Personal Development syllabus outcomes.
The facilitator of AMAZING ME Rowena Thomas is a primary school teacher, with more than 25 years experience in sexuality education. Rowena understands the many complexities and challenges when talking about sex at different stages in a child’s life because she has been there herself as a mother of three. Rowena is passionate when talking about sex and puberty with the goal that helpful conversations will be started and continued, that puberty is ‘normalised’, relationships enriched and strengthened and as a result wise choices are made in the future. The AMAZING ME programs are humourous, sensitive, engaging, straight to the point, open and honest. Rowena’s strengths lie in facilitating a lively and uninhibited presentation providing an informative interactive program for all. Children, parents/carers and teachers listen, talk, laugh and learn together in a relaxed and open atmosphere. They are encouraged to respect themselves and others, to celebrate differences and diversity, to be self confident and have a greater understanding of their body during puberty.
More than ever, children must be prepared for the world they are growing up in. They are never too young to be given age appropriate building blocks and foundations for making wise, informed decisions about their bodies, friendships and peer relations. Schools working in partnership with parents and Amazing Me are a great place for this to happen.
Where, when, how and why should we talk to our children about sex and puberty? AMAZING ME is the answer!
