“Our objective is to encourage schools, parents, businesses, service providers and government agencies to adopt PBL as a framework, with the aim of enabling every child to achieve their maximum potential.

“Community PBL is an expansion of the effective framework implemented in all our affiliated schools.

“Currently, over 3000 students are enrolled in PBL-utilising schools, where it supports the well-being of students, staff, families, and the community.

“We take pride in the positive influence that Community PBL has had on the youth of Raymond Terrace through promoting Positive Behaviour for Learning and therefore positive behaviour for life,” she said.
