Schoolies' theft but victim giggling

Nurse Rose Gordon at her tent Magnetic Island resident, nursing sister and sexual health specialist Rose Gordon today reported the overnight theft of 1,800 condoms from her sexual health advice tent at Alma Bay.

But as the condoms, which also promote free advice on genital herpies, were to be given away, Rose could not have been happier. "Im just really pleased that it appears that schoolies have been so enthusiastic in accessing 'health hardware'" she said giggling.

The condoms and lots of other free material promoting sexual health, as well as cheap tickets to the forthcoming Powderfinger concert, are part of Queensland Sexual Health's program to engage schoolies during their stay on Magnetic Island.

Rose was however far more concerned at the number of schoolies from Catholic schools visiting her tent seeking advice. "There have been kids from Catholic schools who have had no sexual education coming to me for information and support" she said.

One of Rosie's other activities has been to organise a Schoolies Scavenger Hunt for which prizes include: 1st: $100 QCCU account and a $25 Sanity voucher, 2nd: $75 Sanity voucher and 3rd: a $50 Sanity voucher.

TO ROSE GORDON, IT IS GOOD TO SEE THAT YOU HAVE THIS SERVICE FOR THE YOUNG ADULTS IN YOUR COMMUNITY. IT HAS BEEN AWHILE SINCE I WAS IN AU. AND WAS CONCERNED THAT THERE WAS NOT MUCH OF THIS OFFERED TO THE MASS PUBLIC. I AM A REGISTERED NURSE IN THE STATES AND THIS IS A VALUABLE ASSET TO EVERY COMMUNITY. ROSE IS DOING A GOOD JOB. THE ARTICLE WAS CUTE. DEE JENKINS

'Tis grand that Rose is giggling about the use of condoms for safe sex by young people. 'Tis pitiful those schooled in the religious systems know so little about how to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

So because these kids go to catholic schools, it all of a sudden means they are NFI on sex. I have five words for you - catholic school girls in uniform.
