In this episode we talk to year 7 students about if they have witnessed and participated in taking drugs. Students open up about when and how they first got them and we hear their views on the subject.
30% of the internet content is porn with over 2 billion web site searches in 2015. 88% of porn contains violence against women. We talk to some boys about the impacts of porn and how it effects their experiences and expectations. Be advised this episode contains discussions around sexual content.
Year 7 students arguably face a challenging year from transitioning from primary school to high school. We talk to year 7 about mental health, how they have felt going into high school and the challenges they have faced.
We've heard somewhere in our lives "you become who you hang around". Is that the case? What effects do friends have on us if we know that we cannot control what people say, do or think? Matt and guest little brother Ben talk to some year 9 students about their experiences.
In light of the terrible attacks in Manchester and London, Year 10 came into this session with questions: is religion behind terrorism? What drives people to do these acts of violence? Should we be careful of everybody who holds a certain belief? Don't miss out on this important episode.
Part 2! We speak to some year 8 male students about teenage relationships. Why should students date if they are so young? What do girls and guys base their relationship on? What is a good relationship?
As we wrap up both a term at school and our first full year of Code of Kings, Matt debriefs a little and gives some advice on how to end your year positively and productively and get a head start on some of next year's goals.
Last week we talked about goals, so this week Matt & Michael have a little chat about how they decide what goals to pursue, what led them to the points they're at now, and why some of our goals get left behind.
We all have goals, whether we realise it or not. What makes some of them work and others fail miserably? Believe it or not, there are actually ways to craft your goals so they're easier to achieve and more likely to get done. Matt & Michael talk the students through some of these tricks and learn that none of them can say the word 'specific'.
Welcome back everyone! It's Matt, Michael & a fresh batch of Year 8 boys running through the gist of the podcast and then talking about pressure. What do we feel pressured to do at school and around our friends? Do we dress and act to please other people? What does it take to be cool? We get down to the core of all that & more. Thanks for listening!
Ian & Michael talk to the students about what they appreciate about their teachers & school, and what they find more challenging. We hear examples of good ways teachers can solve problems and what part of the school experience is most fun. This is our last live school session for the term so thanks to the students for their openness and honesty!
