Consent is when you freely agree to do something knowing what that action involves and what the consequences of that action will be. You can only consent if you were not forced to say yes. You have the right to say no!

This means:
* If you are not sure what you are agreeing to then it is not consent.
* If you are drunk or drugged then it is not consent.
* Children below the age of 16 cannot consent to sex with an adult.
* A learner can never consent to a sexual relationship with a teacher, principal or any adult at school.
