Saleema Noon - Body Science **IMPORTANT**

Each year, students in all elementary grades throughout BC receive instruction in sexual health education. This information is included in the Physical and Health Education program mandated for all BC students by the Ministry for Education.  From time to time, schools bring in experts in the field to address this topic with the school community.  We are excited to inform you that this year we will be using Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators’ online learning platform, Body Science Online, in our school to work with parents and students Kindergarten to Grade 7. 

 

Saleema Noon earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Family Sciences at UBC. She then researched the quality of sexual health education in B.C. high schools, earning her a Master of Arts degree in sexual health education in 1997, also from UBC. Since then, Saleema has been teaching not only in the field of sexual health, but also in the areas of empowerment, assertiveness training, internet safety, healthy relationships, body image and self-esteem.

 

In their Body Science presentations, Saleema Noon and her team of educators work with children of all ages, teaching them about healthy bodies and healthy sexuality in ways they find non-threatening and entertaining.  In their own language, children learn about how their bodies change, and what those changes mean.
