The sessions, conducted by Kidz Biz Education, are designed to be fun, informative and easy to understand.

These highly interactive sessions will provide students and their parents / care providers with an introduction to basic personal and social development education; traditionally known as the ‘facts of life’. By all means, sessions will be facilitated in a manner that is not conducive to an awkward or threatening environment.
