Consell backs affective-sexual education for local primary and high schoolers

foto 2023i afectiu sexual AThe Office of Social Welfare of the Consell de Formentera reports that during the first quarter of the current school year, children at CEIP Mestre Lluís Andreu, CEIP El Pilar and CEIP Sant Ferran de ses Roques, attended classes on affective-sexual health.

Teresa Ramos, a sexologist and social educator, led two 2-hour sessions on the subject. During the second quarter, pupils at IES Marc Ferrer will participate in the same training.

The aim of these workshops, said Rafael Ramírez, social welfare councillor, is "to educate and train young people on biological, psychological and social changes during puberty and adolescence." Lessons are designed to dispel myths, erroneous beliefs and prejudices surrounding affectivity and sexuality in all its manifestations.

Ramos provides participants with theoretical and practical tools to exercise their right to affective-sexual health, which the World Health Organisation highlights as a key component of more egalitarian and non-discriminatory societies. From 6.00pm, 1 February, at IES Marc Ferrer, parents of high schoolers are invited to attend an identical workshop to one already held for parents of primary schoolers. Participants will receive strategies to communicate with their children and tips to support them in this growth process.
