Greeting from Indonesia;
Hi Radhika, Its me wiwin from Indonesia. I have experienced on development ASRH school curricula, working with senior high school teacher and students. it was 2008 when my team and i selected some subjects at school curricula (sport, biology, civic education, religion, language and student counseling to be included by relevant ASRH issues and message. it was formally delivered at school hours by trained trained teacher.
Yes i was very crucial to have similar concern and ideas with teachers on how to deliver and transfer the ASRH issues. in my setting those ASRH matters considered as taboo, not all teachers were open and keen to to this.
it would be easier if we developed session for teacher training out of school curricula, since we will be quite flexible on this. I would be good if you and selected teacher conduced SALT visit to students, parents, religious leaders and other teachers to dig information and to share concern on how to be able to understand the ASRH situation, challenge and expectation from those visited group as initial step of teacher training on ASRH issues. From those information collected we can stimulate teacher's concern on how to do self assessment and address the gap. every teachers are parents as well so they will have idea on how to cope with this issue. but ensure that students's/adolescent voices should be heard and primarily considered as one of information to decide the the suitable approaches. inviting resource person from health provider will be one of alternative to "fill in" teacher with some technical adolescent heatth information, case and to create link and access for further need and support.
Creating students forum and parents forum (including informal leaders at in the neighborhood) were also effective way on elaborating idea to have social support on our effort since talking about ASRH issue was still uncommon.
hope this is useful, shall you have another more detail information kindly let me know. Good luck Radikha..
Thank you Wiwin for sharing your experiences.
Yes, we are designing this lessons as an extra co-curricular activities. Therefore,it will be more and more interactive.
