Love Bites in Schools
We are committed to fostering respectful relationships among young people. Our Love Bites in Schools program is an integral part of this commitment.
Love Bites is a highly successful Respectful Relationships Education Program designed for young people aged 11-17 years. The program is based on best practice standards for education programs as recommended by leading academics in the area of violence against women.
Our Love Bites in Schools program is a flexible model that can be delivered in a full day or multi-session approach. It consists of two interactive workshops: one on Relationship Violence, and one on Sex and Relationships, followed by creative workshops and community campaigns.
The program aims to provide young people with a safe environment to examine, discuss, and explore respectful relationships. It focuses on three critical areas for learning: knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours. The overall goal is to equip young people with the knowledge needed to have respectful relationships, encourage and develop their skills in critical thinking, and assist them in being able to problem solve and communicate effectively.
In addition to the core Love Bites program, we also offer Love Bites Junior, a respectful relationships education program that focuses on the development of respectful relationships for 11-14 year olds. It is a suite of 3 programs designed to be delivered consecutively as the sessions are deliberately scaffolded to incrementally build young people's skills.
ROSS is proud to bring this program to schools in Inverell, Glen Innes Severn, Gwydir, and Tenterfield. Our trained facilitators work closely with schools and local service providers to deliver the program and support students in their journey towards understanding and building respectful relationships.
