The Grit Scale was created by psychologist Angela Duckworth. Duckworth has found that grit, a combination of passion and perseverance for a singularly important goal, is the hallmark of high achievers in every domain. Grit is something that can be learned. Some of her questions were included on the school survey. How do NT students fare?

According to the Curriculum
Grade 1: Students learn about body parts and genitalia, with possible examples: penis, testicles, vagina, vulva. Could be as simple as “boys have penises and girls have vaginas,” or more detailed, depending on the resources teachers use.
Grade 6: Healthy relationships and sexual consent are major issues covered. If a student asks about masturbation, a teacher could respond by saying: “Things like wet dreams or vaginal lubrication are normal and happen as a result of physical changes with puberty. Exploring one’s body by touching or masturbating is something that many people do and find pleasurable. It is common and is not harmful and is one way of learning about your body.”
