GMS lead school for Respectful Relationships

posted 29 Mar 2017, 16:59 by GMS Board

Gisborne Montessori School has been chosen as a Lead School to further develop our work in  promoting  respectful relationships. This work is aimed at preventing family violence through education, building community awareness and the delivery of targeted programs.

We are proud as a school, to be chosen to be a leader in this field. We were nominated because of the outstanding work we are already engaged in with building positive relationships throughout the school community. The program will involve our staff team becoming engaged in further professional development around the theme of positive relationship education. We will also work with other professionals in our area to develop support networks for families who identify as requiring additional support. Our staff team, once trained, will then mentor other teachers and staff from other schools who will eventually be linked into our expertise.

We are committed in this school to create an environment of gender equity, a place where everyone feels safe and feels heard, a place where we can all interact in a respectful, peaceful manner.  It is our aim to make the world a better place for all children and families in our community.
