Your Job, My Job, Our Job
Teachers and students develop classroom behaviours and expectations through collaborative discussions about teacher and student jobs. This type of collaborative discussion alleviates implementing rules and ensures everyone is responsible for their own behaviour and choices.
Berry Street Education Model
As a school we are currently being trained in and implementing the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM). BSEM provides strategies for teaching and learning that enables teachers to increase engagement of students with complex, unmet learning needs and to successfully improve all students’ self-regulation, relationships, wellbeing, growth and academic achievement.
Respectful Relationships education is a core component of the Victorian Curriculum which we teach from grade Prep to 6. It is all about embedding a culture of respect and equality across the entire school community.
