“All students, staff and members of our community promote our school PBL values of being ‘Positive, Respectful and Safe Learners’ at school and in the community.

“Each week students are explicitly taught positive behaviours as a whole school and are rewarded for demonstrating these behaviours.

“Our students are demonstrating these positive skills when community members are coming into our school such as Aussie Hoops and Drumbeat, and sharing our values in the community when on excursions such as debating workshops, Star Struck, rugby league gala days and we know they will continue to display our expectations during our upcoming school camp and K-2 excursion to Oakvale Farm.

“This is a credit to the implementation of our PBL program.”she said.
