International School of Luxembourg: Learning Loft

Since 2010, through hosting a variety of professional development workshops, ISL has played host to hundreds of inquisitive international school educators. These workshops attracted teachers, curriculum designers, school leaders and other educational experts to participate in learning experiences geared towards positively impacting and influencing student learning.

Do your parents know that your Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programme connects with the school’s values? - Susie March
Thursday, 25 March, 2021
17:00 – 18:15 PM CET
Session Description & Objectives:

How can we increase supportive Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) collaboration with a far more diverse set of parents?

By empowering parents to take up the mantle of “Primary Educators” of CSE, there is an opportunity to create a supportive forum for positive conversations between parents, their children and the school about sexuality and relationships.

Takeaways for participants:

  • Within their context, schools need to find new ways to empower the parents and carers in their specific role in CSE.

  • Help parents understand why and how your school’s vision, mission & values are directly connected to the CSE approach.

  • Having a well-publicised community-consultative CSE policy will underpin and enhance your program.

 

This event will be facilitated by Tianna Monea, Upper School Academic Leader for Physical Education and Health.
