The Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) system of behaviour management encourages positive behaviour from students, which has been shown to improve their self-concept and motivation to learn. PBL focuses on behaviour modification through explicit instruction. In PBL, positive means an emphasis on reinforcement as opposed to punishment and the model aims at teaching students behavioural expectations.
PBL is more than just a behaviour management system. It includes areas such as values education, social skills, student voice, anti-bullying, student leadership, uniform policy, attendance, student behaviour and discipline.
PBL uses an approach that focuses on teaching and modelling, coupled with positive reinforcement to effect behavioural changes. It looks at the whole child and addresses the cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual wellbeing of our students.
As part of our PBL program our students receive 'I see you.. Seahorse Cards'. Seahorse Cards are given out on a daily basis in class and on the playground as we catch students making good choices and following school expectations of being Safe, Respectful and Active Learners.
