WOODLANDS Primary School students and teachers used sign language, games of cards and marbles and blind folded obstacle courses to educate parents, grandparents and carers about the school’s Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) program.

The activities celebrated their schools’ four key values – humanity, belonging, possibilities and respect – and showed visitors how the school fostered positive learning environments.

Teacher and PBS chairwoman Danielle Rees said the activities required people of all ages to come together and apply a high level of cooperation and teamwork.

“For example, teaching practical games such as old fashioned card and marble games gave elderly members a chance to share their past and required students to fully engage, fostering a sense of belonging and respect,” Mrs Rees said.
