Respectful relationships


Our Choose Love and Bridge Builders programs engage students in social and emotional learning, which helps build their leadership and relationship skills. 

These programs share a lot of common ground with the Queensland Government’s recently-released Respectful relationships education program.  

Our staff will be starting to using some of the Respectful relationships terminology in their interactions with students, and parents are encouraged to reinforce this learning informally at home.
