Before I get hounded I know that I have a responsibility as a parent to do this as well, but I amjust wondering what year it is done at school.

We do it in Year 5 - which is already too late for a handful of the children.

our had the first sex ed tape in teh last week of year 4, they follow this up in yeasrs 5 and 6

I think that is about right. (DD is 9 and a little girl still but her BF has pubic hair and uses deodrant already, she will start soon enough.

menstruation year five most often.

reproduction in humans and animals (in sketchy detail) may be ealier.

Body parts (including genitalia) may be earlier.
