Andrew is excited to explain his new Rite Journey initiative which brings together his work in schools and his work with families to create a whole school initiative from Prep to Year 12.
The process uses a blend of TRJ principles and The Parenting Plan to create a 12 year graduating responsibility scaffold to work with students all the way across primary and secondary school.
Andrew is currently working with Faith Lutheran College in the Barossa Valley in relation to piloting this process.
Here’s what Jamie Cameron, their Wellbeing Director, has to say:
“At Faith, we are looking to implement a series of milestones/graduation points throughout the Junior School that incorporate new responsibilities and new freedoms, ultimately culminating in a special Year 6 Graduation. Effective personal and social development is a constant focus from ELC to Year 12, currently highlighted in Year 9 where we deliver The Rite Journey to our 14-years-old. Andrew Lines has been instrumental in leading our staff as we look to expand TRJ across all year levels in our Junior School. His advice has been significant in guiding our process and his introductory presentation to staff was meaningful and engaging. Andrew’s wisdom and developmental sequence has a clarity which has helped us navigate through complexities, providing a sense of purpose and achievement, whilst validating accompanying emotions and challenges. Student voice has also been incorporated into our process and we are excited about now taking this journey further, involving our wider community.”
