Volunteers from the SAFER clinic brought the Sexual Health Jeopardy Wheel to Revelstoke Secondary School earlier this month.

The SAFER clinic makes this an annual event in order to bring awareness to the students about our clinic and also to test their knowledge about their sexual health.

They spin the wheel then get a category and we ask questions. If they get it right, they get a chocolate kiss – candy that is.

It’s interesting how the students will even get together and help each other with the questions and say, “I just learned something I didn’t know.”

We are wanting to encourage the students to use our resource for their questions and to talk to someone about concerns they have related to sexual health. We would like them to see us as non-judgmental, unbiased and easy to approach as we know that in their teen years they may get involved sexually and not be well informed about how to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies as well as sexually transmitted infections.

It is a fun event and educational as well.
