We are thrilled to say that our new Initiative Building Respectful Relationships has been a great success. Over 100 Year 8 students from Cranbourne Secondary College, underwent the program facilitated by two members of our Counselling team with specialist knowledge of family violence, relationships, sexual assault and gender-based violence.
The aim is to create and build positive perspectives and behaviours around gender based violence through challenging attitudes towards violence, building an increased knowledge base and developing a culture of respectful relationships.
Family Violence is a community wide problem and we all have a role to play in educating our young. A BIG thanks to the Newsboys Foundation (previously Melbourne Newsboys Club) for funding the program this year and working with us to make a difference in the lives of our young people.
