Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) at Ocean Grove Primary School
Our inclusion philosophy at Ocean Grove is broad ranging and diverse, including those with different abilities, cultures, genders, and relationships. We believe all students and members of our school community should be included, accepted, and celebrated.
Currently at Ocean Grove we are implementing Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships program across all year levels, which is a government initiative. This includes eight topics covering Emotional Literacy, Personal Strengths, Positive Coping, Problem Solving, Stress Management, Help Seeking, Gender and Identity and Positive Gender Relations, which complements our Social and Emotional program.
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.
We know that changes can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are lived across the school community, and when classroom learning is reinforced by what is modelled in our school community.
A whole-school approach to Rights, Resilience, and Respectful Relationships recognises that schools are:
- a workplace where all staff should feel equally respected, safe and valued and have equal opportunities.
- a safe space where young people can learn about gender equality and respectful relationships, in and out of the classroom.
- part of the wider community that can model gender equality and respectful relationships.
Below are the links to the PowerPoint slideshows that will guide teachers when delivering both Topic 7 (Gender and Identity) and Topic 8 (Positive Gender Relations).
