OYC Meeting Minutes 31/10/18

WELCOME

Apologies :- Roshni P., Khadija A., Abi, Leah, Isabelle A.

Samah started off the meeting with good news.

RELATIONSHIP AND SEX EDUCATION CONSULTATION

Recently, the Government has come out with a guideline on how schools should teach the mandatory Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) to students. The guideline, currently in draft, sets out what schools need to be teaching their students. This is so schools can’t pick and choose what they teach students, and the students have the right information to help them in the future.

A member of the Local Children’s Safeguarding Board came into the meeting to discuss the proposal from the Government, as many youth councillors are currently in secondary education or in college. The board is also hoping to work with OYC regarding RSE in the future.

STANDARD DAY

Standard Day, the theatre piece commissioned by OYC, commences next week for two weeks. This theatre piece, designed for professionals, aims to show the effects of poor mental health, and how professionals can go around it. This theatre piece has the Emma Cammack body paint images in aid, which link in quite nicely.
