Mountain State School students are expected to follow the school rules, show
respect, and to be considerate and tolerant of others. We are fortunate to have
a very high standard of behaviour amongst our student body. When support is
required, we have a number of key staff who provide assistance, depending on
the year level of the student.
Assisting all school staff with advice and strategies for student
management and updates on regional policy/procedures;
Supporting high needs' students to manage their own behaviours
in a more suitable manner;
Coordinating programs to promote positive behaviours, emotional
intelligence, social skills and resiliency;
Promoting whole school practices which support the above;
Assisting families in dealing with challenging behaviours.
believe that the most powerful and effective behavioural management tool we
have is the attention of parents and teachers. That attention needs to be given
at the right time, and needs to be used to support the growth of positive
behaviours by paying more attention to those interactions and less attention to
the negative behaviours.
