Our Values

At Milawa Primary School we educate our young people to be engaged in their learning, respectful of themselves, others, and the environment, creative in thinking and doing, and connected with their school, community, and their world.

Our school takes School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) approach to student engagement and wellbeing. ‘Engage, Respect, Create, Connect’ reflects our commitment to a positive, inclusive, diverse, and supportive school climate where all individuals can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. By embracing SWPBS we enable a nurturing learning environment that empowers all students to become resilient, empathetic, and grateful individuals ready to thrive in an ever-changing world.

We believe that ‘teaching behaviour as relentlessly as we teach reading or other academic content is the ultimate act of prevention, promise, and power’ for our young people. Algozzine, Wang and Violette, 2011.
