Middle School Curriculum
Partnering with Schools and parents to prepare young lives
The journey of adolescents is full of moral decisions, challenges and learning opportunities, all of which have a far-reaching impact on school culture and academic performance.
Michelle’s Healthy Relationships curriculum is designed to specifically invest into the decision-making processes that students can utilise when interacting with others. It aims to work preventatively, practically, and addresses sexual health, relationship strategies as well as personal identity and growth.
This curriculum was originally developed in consultation with a dedicated student support services and school principals who wanted to ensure that values and healthy relationships underpinned their school culture.
This curriculum can be tailor made to the suit the needs of your school. Amongst other things it aims to:
• Offer age appropriate, accurate medical and statistical information
• Deliver content in an engaging and relatable way

• Ensure children are neither overexposed nor misinformed
• Be sensitive to the diverse range of maturity in each classroom
