PBL at Robert Townson



At Robert Townson Public School all staff and students engage in the Positive Behaviour for Learning program (PBL). Our core PBL school values are:


Be Respectful

Be Safe

Aim High


What is PBL?

Positive Behaviour for Learning is a systematic approach focusing on teaching and supporting appropriate school behaviour for all students in the school.  PBL is a positive and proactive approach to school-wide discipline. The result is a continuum of positive behaviour support for all students, where:


·      Behavioural Expectations are Defined

·      Behavioural Expectations are Taught

·      Appropriate Behaviours are Acknowledged

·      Behavioural Errors are Corrected Proactively


Our statement of purpose is recognised by all staff as

‘PBL aims for a positive and engaging learning environment with respectful staff and students.'


Each week students engage in explicit PBL lessons with their teachers. During the PBL lessons our core values are explicitly taught with a specific fortnightly focus. Students are given the opportunity to practise the skills taught and apply them in all areas of school life. Students who demonstrate positive behaviour in the classroom and playground are given a Townie. Each Monday at the flag raising assembly ten students are chosen out of the townie raffle box and receive a canteen voucher to reward their positive behaviour. Students are also rewarded regularly with classroom  rewards, uniform raffle tickets, merit certificates, reward days, Principals awards and gold medallions.


Our PBL mascot, the Townson Tiger!
