Respectful Relationships

Dohertys Creek P-9 College is a lead school in The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) Program.  Respectful Relationships 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 Program involves a whole school approach and requires the support and involvement of students, parents, families and staff.

Across years Prep to 9, students take part in teaching and learning that focuses on each of the following topics:

Teachers are provided with the resources required to deliver the lessons and the College has invested significant funds to upskill staff in their knowledge of the program by allowing them to undertake Professional Learning.

The Respectful Relationships curriculum has strong links to many other areas of the curriculum including English, Ethical Capabilities and Health and Physical Education.

The Respectful Relationships program has been specifically designed to support students to meet the ever-changing demands of 21st-century society and culture. It is the aim that each student leaves us with a solid understanding of what a respectful relationship looks and feels like. We also aim for students to understand their rights and responsibilities have recognition and acceptance that everyone is unique and identify the personal strengths that they possess. As part of this program, it is expected that students will have strategies they can implement to help cope with difficult situations and to know what support is available should it be required.
