The Lovebites Program

LOVEBITES PROGRAM

On Wednesday June 8, 50 Year 10 students were active participants in the pilot program of Lovebites, which was run at the school in collaboration with three members from Victoria Police, two staff from Plenty Valley Community Health, three DET Health Educators and five Whittlesea Secondary College Staff.

This program was divided into three sections;

  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual Assault
  • Creative Project

The students involved in the day are to be commended in their active participation, the respect and maturity they displayed while dealing with these sensitive and confrontational issues. The feedback from the students indicated that they felt the day was very informative, most worthwhile and that they gained valuable skills in building resiliency.

Special thanks to Jackie Weepers and Julian Holland for all their efforts in planning and organization of the day, we look forward to rolling out the program to the rest of the Year 10 students this year and Year 9 & 10 students in 2017.
