cover of position brief

The Commissioner has repeatedly heard from children and young people that healthy relationships are some of the things they value most, and that they want the opportunity to learn about the best ways to form and maintain them.

To better understand the needs of children and young people around relationship and sexual health education, the Commissioner released a survey in September 2020. Over 1200 young people aged 12 to 22 responded, overwhelming asking for more consistent and comprehensive education on relationships and sexual health.

From the responses to the survey, the Commissioner produced Sex Education in South Australia.
