Sex education or education on reproductive health is something that should be given to children who are in their teen years, either through formal or informal education. This is important to prevent misconceptions in sex education as well as knowledge about reproductive health among adolescents. Materials for sex education intended for teenagers mainly emphasize promoting pragmatic sexual and reproductive health care and provide frank and comprehensive information for teenagers.

Hence, on the 8th and 9th of June this year, SMK and SMA CKS held a "Group Discussion" on "Reproductive Health of Adolescents". The discussion was divided based on the class level and also gender so that students could be more open to ask questions, especially regarding the development of reproductive anatomy and personal experiences that may be perceived as taboo.

The discussion went on successfully, students were enthusiastic in asking questions. In addition to that, students were also encouraged to do "sharing" with their friends in groups. Considering that learning about sex is important and necessary for physical and mental health, CKS also involved experts such as doctors and psychologists in these discussions and of course the parents of students to establish more open communication with the students.
