Stacy Mathieson of Irrawang Public School told News Of The Area, “Positive Behaviour for Learning was implemented at Irrawang Public School in 2010 and has become the framework for all of our systems and practices in order to enhance learning.

“PBL is a proactive system that responds to the needs of the school.

“Focusing on the behaviours we want to see, so students understand what they are supposed to do in all settings.

“This sets students up for success and increases engagement.

“Community PBL was a natural progression.

“Taking those same values outside the school gate.

“It has been wonderful to see so many students being acknowledged for being responsible citizens outside of school.

“We are proud to be a part of the Raymond Terrace Community PBL initiative,” she said.
