Love For Life 2019

Love for Life

As a complementary part of the school’s on-going PD programme ‘Love for Life’ presentations aimed at Year 9 and Year 10 pupils took place today.

The presentation for Year 9 was called “iZONE”. It looks at the pressures facing 12 and 13 year olds as they make choices in many areas of life. Key topics addressed include peer pressure, media influence, healthy choices about smoking, alcohol, drugs, exercise and diet and sexual activity.

“Icebergs & Babies”, the Year 10 presentation, is a multimedia, interactive programme which highlights the risks of premature sexual activity and it teaches skills to resist sexual pressure and encourage informed choice with respect to sexual behaviour.

The presentations were carried out by qualified counsellors from “Love for Life” – a registered charity from Lurgan.
