PLC 1 Vision and Purpose
Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR)
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 in attitudes and behaviours 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.
Classrooms explicitly teach RRRR twice a week and follow this within all areas of the school.Bendigo SDS has been acknowledged, state-wide, for their work in this area and identified as a special school of excellence and leadership in the Respectful Relationships area.
