Above The Influence introduces the concept of choice and how choices made now can have long term consequences, especially in the area of relationships. It emphasises the importance of good friendships in developing healthy relationships. It explores some of the main influences on their choices and encourages them to think for themselves and rise above negative and damaging influences.
I Wish explores the reasons why teenagers decide to start having sex and looks at the possible consequences of making that choice. It aims to equip the students with clear, medically accurate and up to date information on how to keep themselves safe from the risks of teen sex and supports them in delaying sex until a long term committed relationship.
The Big L asks the question “What is Love?”. It explores the interconnection between sex, love and commitment by looking at the differences between Lust, Like and Love as possible foundations for a relationship. It also explores the area of consent and the possible effects that widespread exposure to
pornography is having on relationships. It aims to reconnect sex with love and commitment.
