Duval High School officially launched the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) initiative on Thursday, 28 February, 2013. Students, parents, staff and community members participated in a day of celebration to recognise this important milestone in the school's history.
PBL is an initiative designed to reward students for their positive behaviour. Virtually all students display excellent behaviour and complete their high school years without ever having any disciplinary questions raised. Their behaviour helps create a safe, friendly school community environment conducive to teaching, learning and having fun. The PBL framework has been implemented at Duval High School to recognise the efforts of this ‘vast majority' who contribute to the school community in this way, explained Stafford Cameron, Principal.
The launch celebrations began with a whole school assembly which included invited guests who are important to Duval High School. Charlie Winter from EACH spoke of the importance of our core values – Community, Respect, Excellence, Safety and Teamwork (CREST), in the workplace. The whole school community participated in a flash mob, which was a fun way for the students to demonstrate their core value of teamwork.
Following the assembly, the students were treated to lunch and then had a fun afternoon of activities at the Monckton Aquatic Centre.
