“My class learnt about types of contraception and how they work. We also found out about what our body is telling us naturally. It was really fascinating and made us think. I particularly enjoyed seeing the video clips and the womens health care items you brought in. Thank you from the class.” Yr 11 Student


“An excellent class covering many important aspects. Pitched perfectly for our Year 10’s; they were involved, focused and able to take away valuable information. We have already booked for next year!” Pastoral Care Coordinator. Pinehurst College
