PB4L - School Wide

In our PB4L journey to date we as a school have looked at our values - Respect, Confidence, Community and Success. Throughout the year the PB4L team worked with staff, students and the community to refine these values.

This term in our PB4L assemblies we have agreed that our revised school values are: Respect, Independence and Community.  We have created expectations about what these behaviours look like in all non classroom environments at Miramar Central School.  

Our students brought home three surveys based on each school value to discuss with you and to receive your feedback. Thank you to everyone who gave feedback.  All the data from all of these surveys have been collated by the PB4L Leadership Team comprising of Ed Trotter, Harriet Richards, Ann deJardine, Jane Scadden, Karina McKiernan, Raph Millen and Steve Shand from our Board of Trustees. As a team we will continue to look at ways to include your ideas and suggestions.

This Behaviour and Teaching Matrix which states our values and expectations is now available for you to look at on the website under the PB4L tab.

We look forward to your continued involvement in our journey in 2018.



In 2017 Miramar Central School have started implementing PB4L-Schoolwide. PB4L stands for Positive Behavior for Learning.

 PB4L aims to develop a culture where behavior and learning are a way of life.

It’s about working together as an entire school community to create environment, systems and practices that support children to make positive behavior choices.

We have a PB4L Leadership Team consisting of Leadership, Teachers,Support Staff and a Board member.

PB4L is broken down in three ‘tiers’.

As we are just starting our PB4L journey we are currently working in Tier 1.

At this point we are working together as a school, students included, to decide what values are important to us and what those values look like in different areas of our school.

After brainstorming as a staff and in our classrooms, we bring the ideas together, create a list of 3-5 expectations for the different school areas, and then learn about together at PB4L assemblies/hui.

These PB4L assemblies/hui are held every second week (even weeks of the term) on Mondays at 2.15pm. As with every school assembly our extended school community and whanau are welcome to attend.
