Previously, the PBL program included only Raymond Terrace primary and high schools.

The PBL program reached out to Medowie and Salt Ash schools to join them, and Medowie and Salt Ash Public Schools came on board to expand the program.

The PBL program initiative links local schools in together to support and celebrate the positive behaviour of students.

To honour their school joining the program, staff and students at Medowie Public School created a new mural, depicting their participation in the PBL initiative.

The mural now takes pride of place at the school entrance, reinforcing the school’s core values.

The school funded art project was completed in conjunction with Up n Up, a community based youth engagement group who collaborated with the school to complete the mural.

Jason Wells, Assistant Principal at Medowie Public School, told News Of The Area, “Students, staff and artists worked side by side over a number of weeks to not only learn a number of artistic skills, but also to examine what the core values represent and mean to our school and school community.”

This week an opening celebration was held to allow the students to share their artwork with parents and family.

Guests enjoyed some delicious treats donated by Woolworths Medowie.
