RIGHT, RESILIENCE AND RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS (RRRR) CURRICULUM
As you may be aware the Royal Commission into Family Violence in 2015 revealed some confronting statistics about the rates of family violence in Australia. As a result of the findings a curriculum has been developed and trialed for implementation into Victorian Government schools by 2019.
Mount Clear College is a Lead School in the implementation of the Rights, Resilience and Respectful Relationships curriculum and will partner with local schools to support the delivery of this program.
Mount Clear College has implemented this curriculum into the current learning practices particularly through the Mentor Program and will be supporting other schools in the region. More information can be found on the Department of Education website and any questions or concerns are welcome.
Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships are a suite of teaching and learning materials for Foundation to Level 10 that are mapped to the Victorian Curriculum. These have been developed to address the eight topics:
Topic 1: Emotional literacy
Topic 2: Personal strengths
Topic 3: Positive coping
Topic 4: Problem solving
Topic 5: Stress management
Topic 6: Help-seeking
Topic 7: Gender and identity (not included in Level 7-8 and Levels 9-10)
Topic 8: Positive gender relations (not included in Level 7-8 and Levels 9-10)
Note: Materials have also been included for years 11 and 12
Building Respectful Relationships is an optional resource that can be used as part of the Junior School curriculum.
Mount Clear College is currently trialing parts of this resource in the senior years.
