Positive Behaviour for Learning

We have implemented the principles of Positive Behaviour for Learning, and have replaced school rules with our three school expectations of:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility, and
  • Personal Best


Our school mascot is 'Winter the Wise Owl'. Winter can be found on signage in all settings around our school.

Students are rewarded with 'Wakehurst Wise' cards for consistently following our school expectations and can use these to exchange for Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
