For Teachers

Young Deadly Free Teacher Resources

About the resources

Schools provide a safe place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait youth where rapport has already been established between students and teachers; this is integral in delivering sexual health information to youth. Schools also provide a “captive” audience of young people who are already in a learning environment. Students who are engaged in school and are receiving quality Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) are able to pass on accurate sexual health knowledge to their peers.

Teachers with little or no experience running RSE through to RSE experts should be able to pick up and run this program. Our background information steps you through how to set up your RSE program from start to finish keeping you and your students safe and engaged. It is designed to be run as one lesson per week over eight weeks but is flexible enough to be run in other ways if needed.

Relationships and sexuality education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students years 7–10

This unit of lessons is built around a series of three 8–10 minute videos, This Is Us. The series is built around the lived realities of young people in contemporary Australian society, with a focus on the lives of young Aboriginal people. The videos were made specifically as educational videos, to support health workers in discussing sexual health with young people in communities, and for young people in upper high school and are a powerful tool for teachers/aides in facilitating RSE discussion. The films focus on young Aboriginal people but have broad appeal to all young South Australians in this age group.
