POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR INTERVENTION SUPPORT
Positive Behaviour Intervention Support is core to our philosophy in regards to student behaviour. At St. Joseph's, we believe in teaching the students how to behave, rather than expecting them to just know what to do in a school environment. We have four school wide expectations: Respectful, Safe, Reponsible, Learner. These expectations underpin our teaching and learning in regards to behaviour.
Schoolwide Expectations: St. Joseph's has four schoolwide expectations that govern the teaching and behaviour of students. The students use these simple expectations to learn how they should behave in different areas of the school. The students have agreed on expected behaviours in different areas of the school.
1. Class dojo- Students are given points on a classwide reward program. Students have their own avitar on the program and generate points for modelling expected behavours.
2. Student Of The Week- Every week each teacher chooses a 'Student of the Week' from their class. The student and the reason for them receiving the award are included in the weekly newsletter.
If you have any questions relating to PBIS or the PBIS program at St.Joseph's please see the Principal to discuss them.
