PB4L Report 
Week 6

In May, Shiralee Poed conducted a Tiered Fidelity Inventory on Heritage College to see if we are performing as a Positive Behaviour for Learning school. We are happy to announce that we passed Fidelity in Tier 1 with flying colours. The Fidelity Inventory is a self-assessment tool designed to assist school teams, staff, families, and leadership teams evaluate progress and guide implementation and action planning. As you can see from the graph below we improved greatly from 2017.

The process included Shiralee performing walkthroughs and interviewing staff and students to see what their knowledge of PB4L. Below is a break down of the different campuses with a comparison to 2017. This also gives us an opportunity to see where we need to improve.

Shiralee also met with the PB4L team and the follow where her positive remarks:

 

1. The team willingly and enthusiastically engaged in the process throughout, and carefully and thoughtfully considered the current implementation. This is a reflection of the strong leadership of the PB4L team.

 

2. The team have worked tirelessly to ensure that PB4L is visually represented across all campuses and areas of the school with beautiful visuals in multiple locations.

 

3. The PB4L should be commended for their efforts to induct all students at the start of the 2018 school year.

 

Moving forward, there is now a Tier 2 team that will be helping to flag students who have frequent negative behaviours and placing them on  a Check In Check Out (CICO) to help decrease unwanted behaviours.

Hoop Time Regionals

We have been terribly blessed to enter the regional finals of the Hoop Time competition again this year and once again, it has turned out to be another step to far. Our team of ten year three and four students, travelled to the Dandenong Basketball Stadium to take on the next level of teams in the competition. We had one win from three games and had a draw in our last game of the day, which turned out to be just a fun game.

 

Students ran their hardest and tried all day, which was great to see. There was a lot of positives and many things to think about for next year. I would like to also take this opportunity to thank Mrs Saluni, Mrs Sokaluk and Mr and Mrs Smithells for turning up and supporting our team during the day. Most of us are a little hoarse from the event but we enjoyed ourselves. We look forward to next year when we can try this all over again.
