In 2015 our new Core Values were introduced as a positive approach to student behaviour. Here are some examples of staff and students exploring what it means to be a Safe, Respectful Learner in different situations:
Year 6 students formed small groups to discuss ways to keep safe at school. It was great to see Year 6 girls think beyond 'don't run on the concrete'! They then performed a skit about Cyber Safety and the impact that technology like mobile phones or social media can have if used in an unsafe or disrespectful way.
Some Year 6 boys act out a short play they created about the importance for respecting others' property. In this case, however, it was an animated example of what not to do!
Be a Learner
My Byrne and students brainstorm ways they can do their best in learning. Some of the responses included: 'Listening to each other', 'keep trying even if it's difficult', and 'work hard'.
