The PBL school coordinators have shared this statement on the PBL program, “Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) in the community is a joint initiative with Hunter River High School, Irrawang High School, Raymond Terrace Public School, Grahamstown Public School, Seaham Public School, Karuah Public School, Medowie Public School, Salt Ash Public School and Irrawang Public School.

“Our goal is for schools, parents, businesses, service providers and government agencies to embrace PBL as a framework to give every child the opportunity to reach their full potential.

“Community PBL is an extension of the successful framework used in all of our participating schools.

“At present, we have in excess of 3000 students that are enrolled in schools that use PBL to support their students, staff, families and community wellbeing.

“We are proud of the impact that Community PBL has had on the youth of Raymond Terrace.

“Making Positive Behaviour for Learning, Positive Behaviour for Life!”
