Creekside K-9 College follows a positive behaviour approach to enhance the academic and social behaviour outcomes for all students across the college. This is a whole school approach to create an environment which encourages effective learning, development of a positive, calm and welcoming atmosphere within the school. We aim to encourage, recognise and reward the positive behaviours displayed by students. At Creekside, learning appropriate social skills and displaying positive behaviour is an important aspect of our role as a school. We endeavour to teach appropriate social skills by introducing, modelling and positively reinforcing appropriate social behaviours displayed by the students within the school.
Teachers reward and recognise students who display the school values which are responsibility, honesty, respect and accpetance. Teachers that witness displays of positive behaviour in the classroom or in the schoolyard, recognise the behaviour by rewarding students with a ‘Creekside Gold Coin’. Students who receive a ‘Creekside Gold Coin’ place it onto their reward chart and are able to spend them at the school-wide positive behaviour shop.
School Wide Positive Behaviour Recognition
In 2022 Creekside College excelled in the implementation of the SWPB program. We are thrilled to announce that the college achieved the ‘silver award’ which has had a strong impact on the behaviour of students around the school.
