The Respectful Relationships Program teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
St Francis Xavier is a Respectful Relationships Lead School working with ten cluster schools in the South Bayside Peninsula region.
The Respectful Relationships curriculum supports schools to promote and model respect, positive attitudes and behaviours. It teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
The Respectful Relationships whole-school approach recognises that schools are a workplace, a community hub and a place of learning. Everyone involved in our school community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. Classroom learning focuses on explicitly teaching positive attitudes, behaviours and equality so that we will begin to see changes in attitudes and behaviours across our wider community.
Since implementing the government initiative in 2017, we have been proud to host professional learning communities and be involved in a range of community initiatives such as Bully Zero and Bullying No Way Day.
