PBL Continuum

Posted on 05 May 2020


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.

COS is our book pack provider for 2021.The website is open for ordering and instructions on how to complete your order can be found using the Book pack link below

The school has provided the student requirement information to COS, all the items are essential for your child’s learning. Should you wish to order additional items not on the UCHSK list you are able to do that as part of the order.

We would like to remind you, if you have previously purchased any item on the list that is currently in use by your child, there is no requirement for the item to be purchased again.

An example of this would be the calculator which is essential in Mathematics. A new one will serve no purpose if a recently purchased one is the same and functioning well.

Ordering with COS makes back to school easier for most families, however, should you wish to purchase the items at a different retailer there is no obligation to purchase from COS.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the front office.
