Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)

The purpose of PB4L - school wide in Waterloo School is to support everyone to work together to find resolutions that have a positive result and build effective relationships.

Our school wide PB4L focuses on three core values of Be Responsible, Show Respect, Have Resilience.

It’s not about changing the students; it’s about changing the environment, systems and practices you have in place to support them to make positive behaviour choices.
