Our values are Respect, Responsibility, Honesty

Positive Behaviour for Learning

PBL stands for Positive Behaviour for Learning. Positive Behaviour for Learning is a whole school system approach that aims to build a safe, positive and productive environment. PBL establishes positive social expectations for students in all areas of the school. 

Our PBL program is based on a school-wide set of positive clear expectations which are explicitly taught. Our expectations are based around our three values which were chosen by the school community. 




Burke Ward PS have implemented their behaviour expectations for all settings including the playground, and non-classroom environments.  A copy of our behaviour expectations matrix for all settings is available below:
