Contact Us to Discuss Having a Red Flag Domestic Violence Presentation at Your School
Red Flag is a FREE presentation to High Schools in the Illawarra Region and is funded by the Illawarra International Women’s Day Committee.
Red Flags is a 45 minute presentation that educates young people and teachers on Domestic Violence & Technology Safety
The program is open to male and female students and we encourage teachers to attend to provide support to the students. SAHSSI emphasis that while current statistics show that DV victims are primarily female, DV occurs in all relationships.
Topics covered include:
· What is domestic violence?
· The cycle of domestic violence
· Red Flags / early learning signs in a relationship
· How to get help for yourself
· Technology Safety
· How to help a friend experiencing violence while keeping yourself safe
· How young people can make a difference regarding this societal issue
· Services that can help
Before the presentation
SAHSSI will discuss what works best for the school such as group sizes, resources and content. This information can be sensitive to young people therefore a teacher or school councellor must be present throughout the session to offer support.
We will require a projector and laptop with USB access (although we can bring our own laptop where required).
We will also seek consent from each school to take photos of the presentation.
We will encourage students to participate (ask and answer questions) throughout the presentation and share real life client stories where the information is de-identified .
Staff deliver the workshop using language that is appropriate to young people.
A disclaimer is given at the start of the presentation to give students the opportunity to step out of the room if the content is upsetting.
After the presentation
We have a very easy feedback forms ready for the students and teachers to fill in. Feedback is appreciated.
If the school requires additional resources please speak to the staff
SAHSSI looks forward to building relationships with each school and educating young people on this important issue.
