First the SSCA "Safe Schools" deception designed to homo-sexualize children in schools, funded by approx. $2m of Victorian State funds so far. Then the $15m of Victorian State funds to build a "Homosexual Community Centre". Now we have another deceptive schools indoctrination program called the ‘Building Respectful Relationships’ course – teaching kids sex, violence and respect for LGBTI sex acts, costing Victorian taxpayers approx. $21m. It is proving very costly indeed to get rid of the Christian influences Daniel Andrews so hates and to replace our State's moral foundations with our new immoral foundations.
Another course being run in Victorian government schools. . . last August, Premier Daniel Andrews announced that a compulsory course, called ‘Building Respectful Relationships’ would be introduced into Victorian schools, for Prep to Year 10. In Primary Schools, Special Religious Education was removed to make way for this course!
Last week, The Australian reported on the course and the controversial content it contains… the stated aim is to address the need for respect in relationships in an attempt to reduce domestic violence. Concern was expressed about the course and some of the activities, which refer to LGBTI and sexually explicit content, even for Year 8. Casey Council voted to call on the government to withdraw the course. Read articles here and here). In Year 10, students analyse ‘myths about pornography’ and other ‘myths about sex (Herald Sun).
The Education Department website says they “engaged VicHealth to review respectful relationships education in Victorian secondary schools resulting in the Respectful Relationships Education: Violence prevention and respectful relationships education in Victorian secondary schools report.”

The Education Department then “engaged CASA House and Deakin University to develop and trial a range of the teaching and learning materials which address the key issues related to violence prevention and gender-based violence.” The resource, written by Dr Debbie Ollis, is called “Building Respectful Relationships: Stepping Out Against Gender-Based Violence”, “provides teaching and learning activities planned around key themes of gender, power, violence and respect for Years 8, 9 and 10 as well as advice around a whole-school approach to violence prevention.”
Three UNITS have already been written - for years 8, 9 and 10. The Year 10 Unit is titled, “Gender, power and media”.

Some of the activities have caused concern – such as one in Unit 1, where students are shown a number of ‘Personal dating ads’ and asked to analyse them – they include ads for same-sex partners, for relationships and for casual sex. Even looking up ads for themselves! They’re then encouraged to ‘write their own ad for the perfect partner’! There is NO mention of the dangers of meeting someone through such ads.
(See Handout, Unit 1, P 36).
Years ago, we called on newspapers to NOT run such ads at all… and there was a public outcry when Ashley Madison set up a website with ads designed for cheating on one’s spouse. Now year 8 students are being shown such ads, and even encouraged to find them online!
In another activity, students are asked to consider transgender issues – and in another, students discuss pornographic images.
FamilyVoice wrote about the curriculum, expressing their concern, and highlighting the type of activities included in the curriculum.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom.
