Responsible Behaviour Education Program
At Albany Hills State School we value and are committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff. In this environment students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing. We establish high expectations of our students’ conduct and behaviour and believe that for them to have the best opportunity to meet or exceed these expectations they need explicit instruction on what these expectations look and feel like.
The program is designed to be explicitly taught at the beginning of each semester and is based around the three overarching rules mentioned above.
The Albany Hills State School Anti-bullying Program is designed to explicitly teach students about bullying and the steps that can be taken to combat bullying. It is structured so as to support the Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students, not to replace it.
The Albany Hills State School Anti-bullying Program centres on raising student awareness of five main ideas:
- What is bullying?
- What isn’t bullying?
- Am I being bullied?
- Am I being a bully?
- Do I know someone who is being bullied (or someone being a bully)?
The Albany Hills Anti-Bullying program is tailored to be age appropriate and designed to be revisited several times each year by classroom teachers as necessary.
