What we try to do, in a factual and personal way, is to try and clarify the pubertal stage that they are going through and the effects it will have on them. We also try and clarify the mass of information they are receiving.
The programme will run over four weeks and will cover a range of topics. The majority of the lessons are interactive with a great deal of discussion and interaction: group work, role play, class debate. There is very little written content.
