Puberty, relationships and healthy body workshops for Brisbane schools - Let's Chat Education

We’d love to partner with your school to support your relationships and sexuality education. We offer a range of curriculum based workshops to students, parents and teachers. Our student workshops are designed to be run in the classroom with the teacher present to ensure continuity of the learning experience.

We appreciate that each school’s journey with this area of the curriculum may differ and we aim to meet the specific needs of the students with whom we engage. All our presenters are fun and engaging and present the information and activities in a sensitive and age appropriate manner.

We also offer a range of workshops and resources for teachers that support your schools’ positive sexuality and relationships education goals. Contact us to discuss how we can assist.

“Let’s Chat have provided workshops for our students for the past five years. Their handling of sensitive topics surrounding puberty, changing bodies, fertilisation and pregnancy is superb. Our students are led through a series of age appropriate activities which encourage participation and discussion. The girls feel comfortable to voice their questions and concerns in a safe environment. I recommend these women to you without reservation.”
