Respect Matters Program

New online resources are now available to help school students learn about safe, healthy, and respectful relationships, including issues around consent and peer pressure.

More than 350 videos, digital stories, podcasts, and other materials are available free to teachers, students, and families through The Good Society website, as part of the Respect Matters program. For more information, please click HERE.

The Respect Matters program has been developed in conjunction with Our Watch, the eSafety Commissioner, and the Foundation for Young Australians, as well as parent, community, and principals’ groups.
Resources have been developed for students from Foundation to Year 12 and content is aligned with the current Australian Curriculum, which was agreed by all states and territories in 2015.

These resources can be used as you deem appropriate for the context of your school.

The Australian Curriculum is currently under review and a public consultation period will open on 29 April.

Additional resources from the Respect Matters Programme including professional learning modules for educators are available Here.
