Parents Victoria is a statewide democratic organisation representing parents of students in Victorian government schools.
Parents Victoria strongly supports John’s work in Relationship Based Education.
We believe the family-school partnership is an incredibly powerful relationship that can help students achieve some amazing results, not just academically but also socially. The benefits to the school are also enormous. And while a great family-school partnership is what parents, principals and teachers want, it is not always easy to achieve. Like any important relationship, it takes a lot of work to establish and maintain it. There will be times in every student’s life when issues occur at school. How we approach the school as parents, and how the school or principal responds, has a huge impact on rectifying the issue. With an already respectful relationship in place, we are each more able to see the other person’s point of view, and to be proactive rather than reactive.
We believe John’s Relationship Based Education program is a powerful tool to help schools to establish positive relationships at all levels.
