"We've always been very conscious of the wellbeing of everyone in our school community. Since introducing the ReLATE program we can see it recognises the inter-relationship between the adults and the children within the school community. ReLATE builds community and builds a feeling that people care about each other on a personal level not just colleagues or student peers - it goes deeper than that."
