Win a GoPro! Story competition deadline extended:
The Get the Facts (GTF) website has launched a story competition for young people in WA aged 12-18 years, which encourages them to share and reflect on their thoughts, opinions and experiences surrounding sexual health, blood-borne viruses, puberty and respectful relationships.

Young people have a choice of submitting:

  • a short story
  • An original photo, photo series or image.

The competition has been extended until 8th April 2016.

The winning entry will be awarded with a GoPro camera, and the top entries will also be a permanent feature on the GTF website.

For more information and to enter go to http://www.getthefacts.health.wa.gov.au/2/355/1/my_story_competition.pm 


What do you think about the Puberty Series?
WA Health has recently undertaken a review and update of the Puberty Series resources, and has designed a consultation to gather feedback.

The Puberty Series consists of the following three booklets

  • Boys and Puberty
  • Girls and Puberty
  • Relationships, Sex and Other Stuff

You can access electronic copies of these resources via https://gdhr.wa.gov.au/resources/booklets-and-brochures

The aim of this consultation is to gather feedback to ensure the booklets remain relevant and applicable for use with young people and within the school community.

If you have used the Puberty Series resources before, and would like to provide your feedback, please click on the survey link below
