Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships




Ceres Primary School is a partner school in The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships Program.

Respectful Relationships education is a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from Foundation to year 12. It is all about embedding a culture of respect and equality across the school community. The Respectful Relationships Program involves a whole school approach and requires the support and involvement of students, parents, families, and staff.



Across years P-6, students take part in teaching and learning that focuses 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


The Respectful Relationships curriculum has strong links to many other areas of the curriculum including English, Ethical Capabilities, and Health and Physical Education.


Students at Ceres Primary School respond positively to the program and, it is the aim that each student leaves us with a solid understanding of what a respectful relationship looks and feels like. We also aim for students to understand their rights and responsibilities, recognise and accept that everyone is unique and identify their personal strengths. 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.
