SeeMe Media Literacy and Positive Body Image Program

Queen Victoria Women's Centre - SeeMe Media Literacy

SeeMe – The media, my world and me is a new interactive website building young people’s critical media literacy skills and promoting positive body image, gender awareness, confidence and self-esteem.

The SeeMe Media Literacy web site is a new interactive web based resource with five teaching and learning modules aligned to the Victorian English curriculum.

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre has worked with an inspirational team of year 8 Student Leaders and their Teacher Champions from Melbourne Girls College, Doncaster Secondary College and East Preston Islamic College to design, develop and pilot the website.

The website was officially launched at Melbourne Girls College on 14 May 2012 by Education Minister the Hon Martin Dixon MP and journalist Samantha Lane.


Get Involved

The program is ready to be rolled out with a series of one-day SeeMe Training Sessions across Victoria.

We are currently taking expressions of interest from all Victorian schools to nominate two year 8 Student Leaders and a ‘Teacher Champion’ (Year 8 English Coordinator) to participate.

To register for your nearest SeeMe Training Session, contact Sarah Jury at the QVWC on (03) 8668 8106 or s.jury@qvwc.org.au

Visit the SeeMe website to find out more about the development of the program and website.
