PBL Positive Behaviour for Learning @ Chifley College Mt Druitt Campus
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is the broad range of systemic and individualised strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behaviour.
PBL builds systems that makes it easier to teach, creates environments that encourage good social behaviour, teaches all students what is expected and provides a continuum of behaviour and learning support to students who need more support to be successful.
At Chifley College Mount Druitt Campus we follow our PBL code of conduct. The code of conduct underpins the school's core values.
