Catholic HIV/AIDS curriculum:
In accordance with the Saskatchewan Health Curriculum, Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools' students participate in instruction regarding HIV/AIDS. The principal resource for this is the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association's Catholic HIV/AIDS Program, which was developed by the SCSBA, and approved by the Bishops of Saskatchewan in 2020. The program:
- calls children and youth to a Christian response to HIV/AIDS as persons of hope and compassion;
- offers accurate medical and scientific information in sequential, age-appropriate and culturally sensitive ways; and
- teaches students about prevention, transmission, support and treatment through the lens of Catholic Christian moral decision-making.
