For the majority of pupils, the school years are a period for tremendous change and development. They may not be just learning in educational terms, however they are learning they relate to others, including on an intimate level about themselves and how. Pupils may assert their newfound liberty in a quantity of methods, including getting into intimate relationships. For most pupils, the school years are once they first become intimately active. In these relationships, they may not be armed with adequate sexual health and safety knowledge and may make decisions and choices that can place them at increased risk for health issues or risky sexual encounters while they may feel well equipped to handle themselves.
