Conference 2022 – full program

Our 2022 E-Conference theme is Relationship based Education (RbE).
RbE is a philosophy of education that puts relationships at the centre. It was developed by John Hendry OAM based on his 50 years experience as an educator. Relationships that form in the educational environment are the bedrock for everything else that happens.

Conference speakers

The conference will be opened by the Minister for Education, Natalie Hutchins.
John Hendry will introduce the concept of Relationship based Education, followed by academic Kristin Reimer speaking on how the RbE philosophy can help in the classroom.
Then we’ll hear from teachers and principals who are actually putting RbE into practice. You’ll hear how it’s been working at Ocean Grove Primary School and Prahran High School. John Hendry has worked with both these schools to implement the RbE philosophy, so you can hear how it works ‘on the ground’. There will be a chance to ask questions via the chat box.
