Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) is a world-class teaching and learning program developed by experts at Deakin and Melbourne Graduate School of Education.  These age appropriate resources include lesson plans and activities to help students learn and practice social skills and apply them in a positive way to learning, life and relationships.

In 2021, DRPS started their RRRR journey and are extremely excited to equip our students with the social and emotional tools and skills they require. This program strongly aligns with our schools strategic goal of looking after the mental and physical health of our students.

WHAT IS RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS?

  • Respectful Relationships became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum in 2016.

  • The initiative focuses on teaching social, emotional and relationship skills to students as well as assists schools to create caring and equitable learning environments.  

  • Respectful Relationships aims to prevent gender-based violence in future generations by helping our students to develop healthy and rewarding relationships, resist harmful social pressures, resolve interpersonal conflict and seek and provide help when needed.  

  • This is done by promoting equity and respect through direct instruction but also through the systems and practices across the school. 

 

WHY RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS IMPORTANT?

  • Mental health is a growing problem for young people. 

  • Girls and women continue to experience greater levels of gender-based violence

  • Discrimination and harassment is an issue in schools. 

  • Children with disabilities are more likely to be bullied at school
