Pact’s Schools Education Service has been active in secondary schools since 2005. The core of the Service is an interactive discussion presentation to Transition or Fifth-Year students, both boys and girls, on how to prevent a crisis pregnancy.
The workshop is offered in consultation with school personnel as a supplement to the SPHE/RSE curriculum and focuses on helping students identify risks, choices and responsibilities in their relationships.
Following a brief presentation by the facilitator, students are invited to participate in a discussion session with small-group interactive exercises.
The aim of the session is to encourage responsible decision-making, promote self-esteem and self-respect, and foster positive clear thinking about self-care in the area of sexuality and relationships.
Our overall goal is to enhance students’ personal development at an important stage of their lives.
The Schools Education Service also provides information on teenage pregnancy and crisis pregnancy to students throughout the country who are working on school projects. In addition we have developed a small library of materials for loan to schools.
The Schools Education Service can be contacted by telephone on Pact’s main number or at firstname.lastname@example.org. This service is free of charge.
We would be happy to arrange a meeting at your school’s convenience to discuss what contribution Pact might make to your SPHE/RSE curriculum.
