Catching on Early

William Ruthven Primary School uses the Department of Education and Training's Catching On Early: Sexuality education in Victorian Schools program.


Catching On Early is an evidence-based resource founded on the latest research into sexuality education and child sexual development. The program uses active learning strategies to build on students’ early learning and experiences about gender, bodies and relationships. It combines the biological, social and emotional aspects of sexuality education to assist schools in meeting students’ needs as they relate to sexual growth and change.
