Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR)
Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships
Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships is an initiative to support schools and early childhood education settings promote and model respect and equality. It also supports educators to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
In 2016, Respectful Relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from Foundation to year 12, and is being taught in all government and Catholic schools and many independent schools.
At Hughesdale Primary School, we believe everyone in our community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are embedded in our school.
Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships for us is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students.
Respectful Relationships is taught at all levels of the school through the modules of Emotional Literacy, Personal Strengths, Positive Coping, Stress Management, Problem Solving, Help Seeking, Gender and Identity and Positive Gender relations.
Students take part in weekly lessons where role play, games and team learning are a focus.
