Loves Me Not Programme (Year 12)


Loves-Me-Not is a ‘whole-school approach’ to prevent abusive behaviour in relationships.

Following the murder of Sophie Elliot at the hands of her ex partner Clayton Weatherston, the LMN programme is based on a student inquiry learning process and covers the topics of relationships, family violence, power and control versus equality, consent, and what to do as a bystander. Students are enabled to take action (personal action, effective bystander action and community action) to prevent harm from relationship abuse and promote healthy relationships in their school community.

The programme is delivered by Youth Engagement, Youth Development and School Community Officers from the Hamilton East Police Station. They will be supported by 5 kaiarahi who have a passion for Health Education. 

The programme is co-ordinated by Constable Jasper Collier, who has spent the majority of his time policing within the youth environment and has recently spent the time training Hamilton Staff in the delivery of the Loves Me Not Programme.

Date: 24th and 25th June (Year 12 split across 2 days)
