Positive Behaviour for Learning

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At Hurstville Adventist School, we believe that all students, their families and staff have the right to safe schools and positive learning environment.

What is PB4L?

Sharing the responsibility to teach essential life values and encourage positive behaviour from all students is just one way we are different from other schools and what we call the Adventist Advantage.

Together, we have adopted a whole school approach to bring about positive behaviour – “Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)”. This approach has a strong emphasis on teaching appropriate behaviours and providing systems of support to bring about these positive behaviours.

What does PB4L look like?

We have four core values that are explicitly taught across the school based on our Christ-centred learning purpose and Christian values. Not only do these values form part of the PB4L program, but also prepare our students for life.

  • 'Bee' Resilient - Self control, Forgiveness, Tolerance, Perseverance
  • Responsible - Patience, Truthfulness, Acceptance, Obedience
  • Respectful - Kindness, Loyalty, Sensitivity, Trust
  • Ready to learn – Academic Excellence, Initiative, Creativity, Enthusiastic
