“Relationships are not all about sex: they are about trust, respect and consent.” student

Young people consistently advocate for sexual health education to be positioned within the complexity of their real-life experiences, including alcohol and drugs, relationships, peer influence, assertiveness and sexual assault and consent.

Statistics from 5th National Survey of Australian Secondary Students and Sexual Health (2013) indicate that:

  • unwanted sex has been experienced by one quarter of all sexually active students
  • over 58% commented negatively on their sex education at school (yet 43% comment that they rely on the sexual health program for information)
  • 44% rely on internet websites for information – RELATE offers skills in critical analysis to ensure the information students are relying upon is reliable and accurate.
  • Half of all sexually active students reported sending a sexually explicit nude or nearly nude photo or video of themselves, while 70% reported receiving such a photo or video.


With the implementation of the mandated HPE curriculum in 2017 RELATE is the ideal resource for WA teachers of Health Education.
