Calm schools program

We are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for students, with opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences. To support this commitment we have put in place a ‘Calm schools’ program. This approach provides strategies to spotlight positive behaviours and explicitly teach students specific skills that will enable them to be in control their own behaviour. It promotes and celebrates our student positive classroom behaviours and learning goals.
