SEDA College launches a sexual health campaign
In partnership with HSE Ireland (Health Service Executive), SEDA College has launched a sexual health campaign to raise awareness among students of the risks we face when we engage in sexual relationships without wearing condoms.
The idea is also to eliminate taboos on infections and diseases so we can talk about it and also to explain that, if a disease is detected, it has to be treated, and don’t ignore it. The campaign also encourages students to get their tests regularly.
The idea, which was put into practice at the beginning of June, was brought by our former student Daniel Santos, who is also an activist on sexual health awareness in Ireland. Daniel is also ministering lectures and extra activities (check the calendar) with the purpose of guiding the students and clarifying all the doubts surrounding the theme.
In addition to the lectures and videos that are being produced to help the understanding of the importance of safe relationships, a new wallpaper with information on how to prevent and perform tests was also placed in the Student Lounge, as well as two dispensers containing condoms and lubricants, materials that are available to students and can be picked up in the amount they want, free of charge.
SEDA College is the first English Language School in Ireland to promote this action. The school hopes this will help the students, and that their experience is more than learning a new language, that they can also be empowered by having this information.
