Schools im­ple­ment Re­spect­ful Re­la­tion­ship Pro­gram

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS: VIC/NSW -

VIC­TO­RIAN min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion James Mer­lino re­cently turned the first sod on the $11.5 mil­lion Kyneton Ed­u­ca­tion Precinct, which com­bined the pri­mary and sec­ondary schools.

The Kyneton Pri­mary School is one of 126 schools lead­ing the way in im­ple­ment­ing the new Re­spect­ful Re­la­tion­ships Pro­gram, which stems from rec­om­men­da­tions of the Royal Com­mis­sion into Fam­ily Vi­o­lence.

It is de­signed to break the cy­cle of fam­ily vi­o­lence by help­ing stu­dents learn and ap­ply so­cial skills in a pos­i­tive way.

“Kyneton Pri­mary School will help us make Re­spect­ful Re­la­tion­ships the suc­cess we need it to be – work­ing to end the cy­cle of fam­ily vi­o­lence by chal­leng­ing the stereo­types that un­der­pin it,” Mr Mer­lino said.
