Primary School children ask for RESPECT

Respect

Last year our Health Promotion team partnered with Save the Children and local primary schools to explore the prevention of family violence in the community.

The grade 5 and 6 students at Tambo Upper Primary School brainstormed ways that they thought would send a clear message to people in their school and the broader community, and the grade six students felt that the word “RESPECT” was a clear message for how people should act towards others – because if you respect everyone, then there would be no family violence.

Students worked creatively to then illustrate the word in a way that would capture people’s attention and convey the message.

The artwork was turned into a banner, which GLCH’s Health Promotion worker Andrea Farley, recently presented to the whole school.
