On the last day of Zeminar 2019, Zeminar & PwC brought Eboni Burke to the main stage to discuss the existing and potential regimes in place to deliver sexual education in schools. Eboni spoke with great energy and shared the stage with 2 GAA legends – Dublin’s Philly McMahon and RTE pundit, Headmaster and ex Meath Captain Colm O’Rourke.
Eboni is the former Welfare and Equality Officer of the Irish Second-Level Students’ Union. ISSU works towards an education system where the views, opinions and contributions of students are respected in which students are recognised as an official partner in the education system.
The World Health Organization describes sexual health as “a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence”. ISSU believe this description should form the foundations of a revised RSE module in school. ISSU firmly believe that there should be one RSE module for every school and that the
patronage of the school should not impact on the type or quality of RSE that students receive. We believe all lessons should be gender normative and inclusive to all sexualities.
