For more information on Victorian Education Department policies on Special Religious Instruction in government schools  (link here).  Relationships and Sexuality Education is written into both the Australian Curriculum and Child Safe Standards. Independent and Religious schools within Victoria align to these also, however some may have their own specific policies about religious instruction and sexuality education. If you are unsure of where your school stands on this, you may like to ask.
