Children attending outside school hours care (OSHC) services are being encouraged to reflect on how the theme ‘Respectful relationships start with you’ as part of Interrelate’s annual art competition


The ‘Say Yes To Respectful Relationships’ poster competition invites children to reflect on the chosen theme and embrace respectful relationships while identifying healthy and unhealthy behaviours. 


In 2022, the theme encourages building and nurturing self respect and how this in turn can impact relationships with others. Prizes on offer include a holiday to Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort, Faber-Castell gift packs and Interrelate’s Questions Kids Have book series.  


A special category has been introduced for non-school entries which allows families and teachers to participate. In the special category any medium is accepted.  


“We recognise both families and schools play an important role in children’s relationship development, which is why the special category has been added to facilitate these vital conversations in both settings,” a spokesperson explained. 


All special category entries will have the chance to win $250 worth of gift cards. 


Interrelate’s poster competition is supported by The Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of New South Wales, The Honourable Sarah Mitchell, Minister for Education and Childhood Learning and Interrelate’s partners Faber-Castell and Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort.  


Entries close on Friday 13 May and a virtual Awards Ceremony will be held on Friday 22 July 2022.
