Respectful Connections and Consent - Panel Discussion
27th April 2015. 7:30pm - 9pm.
Generation Sex: Navigating Teenage Sexuality in the Digital Era is back in 2015 with a new series of panels tackling the challenges teenagers are facing.
These panels are open for teenagers, young adults, parents, teachers, health professionals and educators in the inner north and bring the community together with an expert panel in a guided question and answer format to discuss the most difficult challenges facing healthy teenage sexuality and expression in the digital era.
The first panel for 2015 will be on Respectful Relations and Consent. Creating an opportunity to hear from teens the challenges they're facing in negotiating sex with a girlfriend or boyfriend and how to broach the topic of sexual interaction in friendships and relationships. We will discuss how to respectfully negotiate what you want and what you don't want so to avoid misunderstandings. Also the impact of gendered behavioural expectations and stereotypes with regard to sex that commonly cause confusion for teens navigating respectful sexual interactions.
These talks are run as a safe space for all backgrounds, ages and all gender and sexual identity and preference. Respect for each other and our differences is a must.
The panels are held at;
Fitzroy High School,
Teacher Development Unit.
Our panels have an accompanying facebook group where we will post events and informative and germane articles on teen sex education. Please feel free to join the group via the following link.
Please invite anyone you feel may benefit from attending but the minimum age is 12 years old.
Best in the State
Josh B (Year 12, 2014) achieved two impressive accolades last year. He was named our Dux for achieving the highest ATAR score of our Year 12 cohort. Josh also achieved the highest study score in the state for Extended Investigation, a new VCE subject.
Fitzroy High School is one of a small number of government secondary schools offering this new VCE study, along with a group of mostly prestigious private schools. Josh’s near perfect score of 49 out of a possible 50 was the highest score achieved for this VCE study across all schools in the state.
The biggest challenge for schools today is the same as in the past – how to best prepare young people for the future.
Today that future is arguably less certain than in the past. Young people will be required to solve problems we don’t yet know about, take on careers in fields that are not yet imagined, and face emerging issues concerning the environment, the use of technology, and the processes of

A team structure forms the basis of the Fitzroy High School model.
Groups of students and teachers are allocated teams, allowing all members of the team to get to know each other well. Students stay in the same team for Years 7 and 8 before moving into new teams in Years 9 through to Year 12.
