This is the first article in a series by John Hendry OAM we will be publishing in Parents Voice during 2019.

Relationship Based Education Project - John Hendry OAM

Parents Victoria is working with John on a new proactive contribution to State Education.

How ‘’giving’’ underpins all relationships. To give adds meaning.

The basic elements of a quality relationship are trust forgiveness, integrity, hope (optimism) and compassion. Each of these are important individually, but in concert they substantiate the relationship. Each is established upon ‘’giving’’ for without giving, none authentically function.

Relationship Based Education Project - John Hendry OAM


Parents invest much into education and one of the critical characteristics of the investment is trust.

Trust is being challenged within the community at present with Royal Commissions, National and State, reviewing behaviours that have undermined community and individual trust. Trust seems to be constantly challenged within education.
Life is lived relationally and it is critical that all recognise that they have a Relational Quotient (RQ). The capacity to form and sustain relationships basically determines each person’s Relational Quotient. This is critical to both the individual’s physical and mental health and the health of the relationships in which they live.

This series of articles will mine deeply this essential Relational Galaxy in which all reside and begins with a brief description of the critical elements of a quality relationship. This set of elements is fundamental to each and every relationship we form and “reside in”. Subsequent articles will investigate how to form relationships, how to nurture relationships, how to manage the inevitable mistakes made in relationships, how to change the nature of relationships and how to conclude relationships AND how relationships determine the capacity to engage and learn.
