In term 1, Woongoolba State School became a PBL school. Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a whole-school framework which helps to create positive learning environments. Data shows that when PBL is implemented with integrity, it helps reduce problem behaviour and increase academic performance.
Each week at Woongoolba we have a 'Rule of the week'. The rule is taught explicitly each Monday in every classroom. Students are provided with clear expectations for each rule. Clear consequences are also communicated to students.
PBL has a focus on positive behaviour, with clear systems for recognising and acknowledging positive behaviour. At Woongoolba we acknowledge positive behaviour with 'Gotchas'. Students who earn 20 Gotchas are presented with a Bee Award on parade and their name is added to a bee in our Bee Hive Display in the undercover area.
Students who received 50, 100 and 150 Gotchas are presented with a bronze, silver and gold award.
