Saleema Noon's Body Science

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 were excited to bring Dr Brandy Wiebe of Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators to work with students in Kindergarten to Grade 7. In addition, all parents had access to Saleema’s online learning platform, Body Science Online, for 30 days so they can see exactly what their children will learn in class.


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. 

This program was provided to all QM students in May 2023. The teachers and administration have stated that the student population would benefit from this course in the first part of the 2023-2024 school year. Please attend the September PAC meeting to vote on funding for this course.
