Student Wellbeing & ASPIRE School Values

At Morwell Central Primary School we believe everyone has the right to fully participate in an educational environment that is safe, supportive and inclusive. Underpinning all behaviours within the school are our ASPIRE values.

Our ASPIRE Values

We are dedicated to upholding the following core school values:

  • Acceptance
  • Support
  • Persistence
  • Individual Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Excellence

These ASPIRE values are an integral part of all interactions. All members of the school community are committed, enthusiastic and engaged in student learning. Students, staff and parents build positive relationships centered around our ASPIRE values.

Each week students are rewarded for making good choices. They will be given ASPIRE Positive Behaviour Tickets or Golden Tickets, which can be redeemed for activities and items of their choice from a student driven catalogue at the ASPIRE market.




Individual Responsibility



Rethink and Reflect

The Rethink and Reflect process teaches social skills and management behaviours. It aims to improve the social functioning of all children. The process focuses on developing srtronger communication, problem solving and behavioural skills. It encourages students to think and reflect about their responses in certain situations and encourages them to own their own behaviour, identify better strategies to deal with situations then accept the natural consequences when required.

By practising Rethink and Reflect as often as possible in social interactions, students develop self-discipline, self-control, self-esteem, self-confidence, maturity, respect, empathy, independence and responsibility. The Rethink and Reflect process runs in conjunction with our ASPIRE values program and alongside our classroom expectations. ASPIRE forms the basis for the values we would like our students to have while Rethink and Reflect focuses on how we would like students to behave.

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

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.
