Seminars for Students
‘WHY NOT JUST WAIT’
For more than twenty years Peter Janetzki has been interacting with teens and young adults about Relationships and Sexuality. From these interactions and his counselling experience it is obvious that many people (not just teenagers) make some of the most important life decisions based on inaccurate information, ignorance, and myths promoted by popular culture.
A number of years ago some teachers from Redlands College at Wellington Point dialogued with Peter about the need for a broad based sexuality program that went beyond the ‘safe sex’ mantra of current sex education programs. This resulted in the development of ‘Why Not Just Wait’ a relationships and sexuality program covering all year levels of High School, co-presented by Peter Janetzki and Jessica Grounds (a secondary school teacher). Using a variety of media to include power point, video, pertinent illustrations, small groups and user friendly manuals in an interactive manner.
The standard program is outlined below, however programs can be modified to suit the individual needs of any school.
Year 8 – Puberty and Changes
Year 9 – Understanding Love, & Choosing Wisely, Conception, Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting, Contraception, The Saying No Strategy
Year 10 – Ingredients of Healthy & Unhealthy Relationships – Communication Skills, Conflict Resolution, Reasons Why Teens Begin Having Sex, Possible Consequences (STD’s/STI’s), Contraception Effectiveness, The MYTH of Safe Sex, Reasons for Abstinence.

Year 12 – Sexual Theology & Beliefs, Holistic Sexual Beliefs, Understanding Male & Female Sex Drive, Thinking Smart & Making Choices.
Young people will do what young people want to do. Consequently we are up front about our values so as to not impose them on students but rather challenge them to examine what we have to offer and to make informed and wise choices.
We believe that Sexuality is not a separate part of our experience in fact it is part of every aspect of life, therefore we approach it holistically and in the context of relationships. We believe that young people have the right to be given accurate information from sound and reliable research, free from hidden agendas. We believe that every choice has a consequence and that young people are able to make healthy, life giving choices given accurate and relevant information. We are Pro-abstinence for two reasons. Firstly, evidence world wide supports that this is the safe and healthy choice, and secondly our presenters hold to a Christian world view. We also believe that the best place for sexuality education is in a loving and supportive family and what we do is a compliment to this.
We can deliver to groups of any size and we can develop specialised programs distinctive to your needs.
