Mates & Dates

Sandy Kindley —

As part of our Year 9 and 10 Health programme we will be offering the Mates & Dates programme this year.

The Mates & Dates programme teaches young people healthy relationship skills and behaviours, to help prevent dating violence. The programme content focuses on the social and emotional aspects of having relationships. It is relevant to all students, whether or not they are dating, because the skills taught can be used in all relationships from friendships to family/whānau. Mates & Dates teaches young people how to have relationships based on respect, negotiation and consent.

The course involves five 50 minute sessions which are taken by trained experienced facilitators. If you have any questions about this course please don’t hesitate to contact Sandy Kindley or for further information go to the website https://www.matesanddates.co.nz/
