Georgetown State School has recently undergone a Behaviour Management Plan review. As a part of this review staff, P&C, and parents were consulted in order to attain the most appropriate set of expectations according to community values. A link to the revised 2015 Behaviour Management Plan is below.
At Georgetown State School, communication and reinforcement are an integral part of our behaviour management plan. Georgetown SS implements a variety of tools to reinforce expected school behaviour. These include:
"The Georgetown Way"
Staff members hand raffle tickets out each day to students they observe following school rules in both classroom and non classroom areas. Students are encouraged to follow the school's charter of expectations and are involved in identifying the rules they are expected to follow. Tickets are placed in a draw and the raffle is drawn at the end of each term.
"Positive Behaviour Celebration"
Students who work through a ten week period without any withdrawals or major behaviour incidences are invited to participate in a positive behaviour celebration. The celebration is planned for one afternoon and the students are involved in the planning and organisation of the afternoon.
Each week teachers communicate with parents regarding the behaviour of students through communication books. These books allow teachers and staff to celebrate positive behaviours as well as identifying areas of concern.
