Assembly: The Gift of Sex
RSE Programme - Secondary Schools
This follow-up assembly to the Ten Ten session, “Love, Honour, Cherish”, takes students on a journey from reflecting on Carly’s desire to feel “cherished”, to a real-life experience of a young man who has decided to save sex for marriage. It is an opportunity for students to explore the themes and values of the filmed drama within a real context and reflect more deeply on the desires of their own hearts.
