Maria Regina Primary School implements proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviours through our ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning’ Program (PBL).
Positive Behaviour for Learning [PBL], is a whole school approach with a strong emphasis on teaching appropriate behaviours and providing systems of support to reinforce positive behaviours. The aim of Positive Behaviour for Learning is to actively teach and reinforce desired behaviours.
Our school rules of Respect Yourself and, Respect Others and Respect the Place we are in are underpinned by Gospel Values which resonate the behavioural expectations and appropriate student behaviours that contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe and supportive learning environment. Maria Regina Catholic Primary School rules and behavioural expectations, outline appropriate student behaviours that contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment. Students at Maria Regina Catholic Primary School are taught, encouraged and supported to demonstrate these expected behaviours.

The aim of Positive Behaviour for Learning is to actively teach and reinforce desired behaviour while implementing consistent, reasonable, mostly positive intervention to address challenging behaviours. Preserving and building child’s self esteem and image as well as encouraging self monitoring of behaviour are vital components of the positive approach. Maria Regina Catholic School aims to provide a safe and supportive environment in which learning takes place.
