Session on Aids Awareness and Human Sexuality – Std.9 on 14/3/2019

On 14th March 2019 a session was conducted for the boys of class 9 on ‘Aids Awareness and Human Sexuality’ by Mrs.Teresita D’Gama and Mrs.Monica Rose from 11.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. in the Media Room.

The session began at 11.00 a.m. with a small prayer. After the prayer the teachers gave a short summary of the contents of the session. The talks helped the boys better understand the working of the human body. It also focussed and covered the issue of the increasing rape cases in India and how we youngsters can prevent it from happening in our society. The boys understood that we must respect all women. We also got to know about various diseases that can be caused with an unsafe sexual contact and how this can be prevented.

This enriching session ended with a small song about respecting women. The teachers took a lot of trouble to make the boys understand a very important aspect of the preciousness of life.
