Why do you think your study is important? What have been studied about sex education in schools in Singapore?

It seems engaging.

I think it is sort of a warning to us teens to be careful when in a relationship.

"Too little examples, maybe more?

It is not too much or too little. I think it is okay.

Its not well done. Very boring.

It is a complete waste of time.

I think that this is helpful as some people may already experience what the teachers are teaching us and they may need the necessary advice from the teachers so that they can cope with studies and love life.

I think it is useful and it will instill a sense of maturity in the students.

I think the sexual education taught in sst is more of a warning to us if or when we get into a relationship.
