Positive Behaviour 4 Learninghttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Positive-Behaviour-4-Learning.aspxPositive Behaviour 4 Learning<p>It has been pleasing for everyone at St Peter’s to see such a calm and peaceful start to the new school year. Our students’ attitudes towards owning their own learning behaviours and that of respecting others has<br>attributed to a high standard of work throughout every year level.</p><p>Much of the high expectations that we have of our students, and that of themselves, can be credited with the calm classroom ethos that we have implemented through our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) strategy.</p><p>PB4L centres around creating an engaging, vibrant and calm classroom setting. We have integrated our expected ROCKS behaviours into a PB4L setting thus revitalising our ROCKS rules to incorporate expected learning behaviours. At St Peter’s our focus is to create engaged learners who are responsible for their<br>own learning. All students are encouraged to be collaborative and persistent learners, who have the resilience to persevere with tasks that may seem difficult, in a safe learning environment.​</p><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt="positivebehaviour4learning.jpg" src="/community-news/PublishingImages/positivebehaviour4learning.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br> </p>
