​During the last three years students from year 10 have attended the Love Bites Program. This year the program was held on the 13th and 14th of May.
The Love Bites program is about respectful relationships. Students discussed healthy and unhealthy relationships and participated in many interactive activities during the day. The program aims to increase students awareness and knowledge of domestic and family violenceand sexual assault and support services available in the community.
The facilitators who assisted to deliver the program included Katrina Weeks from the centre against sexual violence , Kristy from Working Against Violent Support services (WAVSS), Kelly the school based police officer, some youth health nurses from Logan and Beaudesert schools and Phillipa Cook from Ipswich domestic violence service.  Glenn Petersen the chaplain, Gayle Smith the guidance officer also assisted during the day.
I would like to thank the P&C and chaplaincy committees for providing funding to assist to pay for resources, catering and the hip hop artist for the day. Students participated in an afternoon creative workshop where they could do art work or create lyrics and record a hip hop song with key messages about domestic and family violence or sexual assault they had learnt during the day.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to me regarding any health issues please contact me on 3451 8777. This term I will continue to work at the school each Monday and Friday.

Joanne Rochester
