Relationships Matter!

Workshops for secondary school students to help build healthy relationships

Relationships Matter! is a suite of school-based interactive workshops for students from years 7-12. The workshops explore skills, attitudes and behaviours that develop, identify and maintain healthy relationships and provide dynamic, fun and inspiring ways for young people to reflect on their strengths, skills and values.

How are the workshops run?

The workshops are facilitated by trained educators. They can be tailored to meet the needs of the school and the particular cohort of participating students. Workshops are a minimum of 90 minutes to a day in duration with a maximum number of 60-70 students per workshop.
