Our School Values and School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) help to make our school a positive and engaging learning environment for everyone.
Our school values underpin our behaviour and interaction with one another in our school community. Our four school values are:
We recognise the value and importance of assisting students to develop a high level of social aptitude and so implement a whole school social skills program under the direction of our student welfare teacher. Topics are introduced at a whole school assembly with follow up lessons in classrooms.

We teach and model positive and responsible behaviour in the school. The school celebrates this behaviour through:
Respectful Relationships supports schools and early childhood settings to promote and model respect, positive attitudes and behaviours. It teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
The Royal Commission into Family Violence identified the critical role that schools and early childhood education have in creating a culture of respect to change the story of family violence for future generations.
In 2016, respectful relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from foundation to year 12, and is being taught in all government and Catholic schools and many independent schools.
Everyone in our community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are embedded in our education settings.
Respectful Relationships is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students.
Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality, and creating genuine and lasting change so that every child has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
