Evolving Friendships

As children’s bodies change through puberty, so too do their friendships and relationships.

During this 60-minute interactive session, students learn: 

  • To recognise emotions in themselves and others.
  • Characteristics of healthy friendships.
  • Warning signs and unhealthy behaviour in friendships.
  • Practice assertive communication strategies.
