 Positive Behaviour for Learning

 
 
 

At Thulimbah State School we have developed a culture that promotes learning. All students are supported and nurtured to ensure each one develops socially, emotionally and academically. They are expected to display high levels of self-discipline, and to care about the well-being of all other members of our school community. Significant time and energy is spent developing and maintaining positive relationships between all members of our school community. Our school-wide PBL focus is an integral part of teaching students behaviour expectations as is the program Play is the Way which is a practical methodology for teaching emotional resilience using games. In 2016 a new behaviour communication form was introduced so as to improve communication between the school and parents and also ensure each students accountability for their behaviour choices. Thulimbah State School has a zero tolerance for bullying and through the delivery of our Respectful Relationships and Play is the Way programs we focus on treating others as you want to be treated. This is modelled by all staff in all situations and staff receive professional learning opportunities to enhance their skills in these areas. Thulimbah State School promotes positive behaviour choices with our BBcards, BB shop, reward vouchers, postcards home and reward certificates.

 

 

 

Respectful Relationships Programs

 
 
 
 The school has developed and implemented programs that focus on appropriate, respectful and healthy relationships. These are embedded within our Health curriculum which is delivered every semester. Our Health units draw on the resources of the Respectful Relationships program and this combined with our PBL and Play is the Way program have built a culture of respect, empathy and compassion. Messages reflecting respectful relationships are also published in our newsletter. The Daniel Morcombe unit is also delivered to students in Health. All of these programs develop students’ knowledge and skills to be able to resolve conflict without violence and to recognise, react and report when they, or others, are unsafe.
