Year 1 to Year 6 

 Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships 

     (Published by Department of Education and Training)

The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) learning program has been designed to assist schools to develop students’ social, emotional and positive relationship skills. Developing social and emotional skills in children has been shown to improve mental health and subjective wellbeing. 

The learning materials cover eight topics of Social and Emotional Learning:

  • Emotional Literacy
  • Personal Strengths
  • Positive Coping
  • Problem Solving
  • Stress Management                                                   
  • Help Seeking
  • Gender and Identity
  • Positive Gender Relationships. 

The scope and sequence at Clairvaux has been designed to ensure units are covered thoroughly and sequentially. 

The Berry Street Education Model (BSEM) is integrated into our Social and Emotional Learning to complement the programs we use. For further information about the BSEM please follow the link: https://www.childhoodinstitute.org.au/focus-areas/berry-street-education-model 


In addition to the explicit teaching of social and emotional skills, we have a number of activities and initiatives in place to support our children. Some of these include:

  
  • Buddies - Preps and Year 5
  • Transition to school program
  • Clairvaux Student Council (CSC) reps Years 3-6

  • Lunchtime activities including quiet play, yoga and ICT
  • Gratitude Tree
  • Circle Time
  • Take a Breather - mindfulness after first and second lunch
