Domestic violence program for schools
QUEENSLAND schools are being encouraged to adopt a new education program that highlights domestic and family violence.
Education Minister Kate Jones said the Respectful Relationships education program was part of the State Government's campaign for cultural and attitudinal change on domestic and family violence.
"The new Respectful Relationships education program has been developed in response to the recommendations made in the Domestic and Family Violence Taskforce's Not Now, Not Ever report and is available to all schools this term," she said.
"The program aims to clearly convey the message to Queenslanders from a young age that domestic and family violence is never acceptable, and that everyone has a responsibility to act."
