“I think it is appropriate to remind ourselves of the amazing students we have at Salt Ash Public School.

“Daily, as the staff and I interact with students, we are continually impressed with their positive, respectful, and safe approach and willingness to do their best in all school learning areas.

“This term we have celebrated many positive, respectful, and safe learners at Salt Ash Public School at the Community PBL Awards here at Raymond Terrace MarketPlace.

“Our school community would like to thank the ongoing support and partnership with Raymond Terrace Marketplace and the community PBL program.

“Next week our school will celebrate the PBL values in a reward pop up day.

“This has been achieved by the collection of ‘gotchas’ or tokens by the whole school community,” she said.

This week’s nominees are all a great example of the values that PBL promotes in real life.

Maddison is always polite, shows empathy to others and performs tasks with confidence, commitment and reliability.

– Lincoln Anderson of Raymond Terrace Public School was nominated because he saw a ‘Lost Cat’ poster on a pole near his bus stop featuring a photo which looked like a cat he had seen under his classroom.
