Mates and Dates Health Programme

Dear Parent/Caregiver

 Tararua College wishes to deliver an ACC "healthy relationship programme for students”, for all Year 10 students.  The programme is called Mates & Dates and will run for an hour each week during health class for 5 weeks, starting in Term 3,on the 8 August. This letter is by way of information and an option to opt out. 

 The programme will deliver:

  • How to have healthy relationships based on respect, negotiation and consent.
  • How to identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • How to get help if they, or someone they know, are in an unhealthy relationship.
  • How to safely intervene in situations that could lead to harm.

There will be trained facilitators at each session supported by the class teacher.

 If you do not want your son/daughter to participate in the programme or have concerns please contact Clive Bickerstaff the Guidance Counsellor on 3768322 ext 208, to discuss these. 

 Thank you for your time.
