A new Relationships and Sexuality Education curriculum for Catholic Primary Schools is alienating children from diverse families according to a local activist.
The Flourish programme from the Irish Bishops Conference was published in the last week and is designed for pupils in junior infants to sixth class.
The curriculum has come under criticism from a number of sources both local and national, with Tanaiste Leo Varadkar claiming the teachings are not in line with Government policy on sex and relationship education.
Local activist Siona Cahill claims we shouldn't be relying on religion to teach children about sex and relationships.
Speaking to the Joe Finnegan Show, she says that children from different family backgrounds should see themselves included in any education programme.
