‘Touch and Boundaries’ Initiative

25 April 2021 Categories Junior, Senior

Dear Parents and Staff,

Following the recent disturbing allegations and investigations into sexual abuse in Greece and being approached by a number of parents with concerns about how to sensitively and appropriately raise and discuss this issue with their children, we have been recommended of an information and awareness initiative called “Aggigma kai Oria” (‘Touch and Boundaries’) to provide a series of webinars for the Campion community on the topic of ”Prevention of child sexual abuse and sexual education of children and teenagers”. 

The main purpose of their seminars is to inform about the autonomy that a child can and needs to have in relation to their body and how this affects their self-esteem, self-respect and self-protection.

There will be 3 x 2 hour webinars:

1) Adult speech on prevention of child sexual abuse – Monday, 10 May, from 18:00 – 20:00
2) Adult speech on sexual education of children – Monday, 17 May, 18:00 – 20:00
3) Adult speech on sexual education of teenagers – Monday, 7 June, 18:00 – 20:00

The webinars will be in Greek but there will be simultaneous interpretation in English through the Zoom platform that enables participants to listen to the presentation in the language they prefer.

There will be time at the end of each session for questions and answers in Greek and English.

The webinars will be sponsored by the PRC and are free for any member of the Campion community to attend (parents, teachers, school staff).

Please confirm your interest to attend by email to prc@campion.edu.gr and please specify which of the webinars you would like to attend (1,2,3, all three or a  combination thereof) and in which language (Greek or English), ideally by May 4, 2021.
