Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a school-wide approach that addresses problem behaviour and reduces its effects on student outcomes and on the school community as a whole. PBL identifies and rewards positive behaviour demonstrated by students, leading to improved self-concept and increased motivation to learn. At UCHSK students demonstrate our school values and expected behaviours every day. Teachers see and appreciate these positive behaviours and enjoy acknowledging and celebrating them. Students and staff worked together to identify the positive behaviours we would like to see in various areas of the school. Like all skills, behaviours such as “using appropriate public language” is something that we all learn. Through Pastoral Care lessons each fortnight, visual reminders, modelling, and positive reinforcement we strengthen and support these agreed and expected behaviours for University of Canberra High School Kaleen.
Here is a visual that shows the UCHSK PBL process from the student initially receiving a KARE Card, for demonstrating our school PBL values and behaviours, through to the Achievement Award, which acknowledges the consistent and exceptional efforts of a student over the year, and is awarded at the end of year assembly.
