In our ongoing commitment to engage with our community on this topic, we are inviting parents, guardians, staff and students to a third Respectful Relationships evening at Alia College from 6:30-8:30pm on Tuesday, 27 November.
Guest speaker Anu Krishnan will facilitate a workshop on the concepts of primary prevention, why it is important to start talking about the correlation between people’s prejudices and violence. She will also look at the concept of ‘bystander inaction’ and the long term benefits of creating safe, nurturing environments for young people.
We will, of course, be providing catering to fuel your discussions. Feel free to invite friends and family to come along – the more the merrier! RSVP here for all guests by Tuesday 20 November.
If you have any questions about the information evening, please don’t hesitate to contact Amanda, Kim, Chloé, or Thomas in admin.
