Respectful Relationships is an initiative to support schools promote and model respect and equality. It also supports educators to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence. Developing positive and respectful relationships is an important part of a student’s emotional and social development. The relationships in a student’s life, including those with friends, family and peers, can influence their physical health, promote self-esteem and assist them in developing a sense of belonging.
