We Foster a Safe & Caring School Environment

At St. Joseph’s Primary School, Mernda, we understand that a student’s wellbeing is essential to their academic success and overall quality of life. That’s why we have implemented a wellbeing approach based in Positive Behaviour For Learning (PBL), which incorporates evidence-based practices to support the social, emotional, and behavioural needs of our students.

To ensure that our PBL approach is up-to-date and reflects the latest evidence-based research, we have partnered with Dr. Shiralee Poed, an expert in the international PBL field. Dr. Poed brings her expertise to our school community, helping us to continuously refine and improve our approach to supporting student wellbeing.

Our PBL approach is grounded in the latest research and best practices in the field of wellbeing. We believe that supporting students’ social and emotional needs is crucial to their academic success and overall wellbeing. Our PBL approach focuses on prevention and early intervention, and we work to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.

In addition to our partnership with Dr. Poed, we also incorporate the teachings of The Resilience Project into our everyday wellbeing approach. The Resilience Project is an evidence-based initiative that focuses on promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in students through the development of key character strengths such as gratitude, empathy, and mindfulness.

At St. Joseph’s Primary School, Mernda, we believe that every student deserves a positive and supportive learning environment where they can thrive both academically and personally. We are committed to providing our students with the tools and resources they need to develop strong social and emotional skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

Through our PBL approach and partnership with Dr. Poed, we are continuously improving our practices to ensure that we are meeting the unique needs of each and every student. We are proud to be a school that places such a high value on student wellbeing, and we look forward to continuing to support our students in every way possible.
