Respectful Relationships

Marysville Primary School is committed to implementing the Respectful Relationships Program, which came about as a result of the Victorian Inquiry into Family Violence.


The Respectful Relationships Program involves a whole school approach and requires the support and involvement of students, parents, families and staff. Across years F-6, students take part in teaching and learning that focusses on each of the following eight topics:

  • Emotional Literacy
  • Personal Strengths
  • Positive Coping
  • Problem Solving
  • Stress Management
  • Help Seeking
  • Gender and Identity
  • Positive Gender Relationships 

It is the aim that each student leaves Marysville Primary School with a solid understanding of what a respectful relationship looks and feels like. We also aim for students to understand their rights and responsibilities, have recognition and acceptance that everyone is unique and identify the personal strengths that they possess. In addition, it is expected that as part of this program, students learn strategies they can implement to help cope with difficult situations and to know what support is available should it be required.
