Education is the process of helping each individual discover their own uniqueness, awesome capacity and responsibility.
Behaviour management at Holy Cross is seen as guiding, leading, encouraging and demonstrating Christian behaviour within a framework of Christian values. There is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. We each have rights and responsibilities.
- everyone has the right to be happy
- everyone has the right to feel safe
- everyone has the right to be treated with respect as an individual
- everyone has the right to communicate and be listened to
- everyone has the right to learn without interruption
- everyone has the right to use and share resources and equipment
Responsibility is when we make informed choices about our behaviour and take control of our actions.
At Holy Cross each person has the responsibility to:
- care for each other
- share resources and equipment
- help each other
- be respectful
- be honest
- ask to help
- do their best
- work and play safely
- have a go
- share attention
- playing fairly and safely in games and activities
- respecting the property of others
- treating others with respect and consideration
- showing courtesy by listening to others
- showing consideration for others
- showing love and care for each other
- put downs – in any shape or form
- damaging the property of others
- speaking in a rude manner
- using offensive language
- excluding others from games or activities
- playing in a manner which could harm to self/others
- being selfish
What happens when unacceptable behaviour occurs?
Restorative practice processes will be used in challenging and changing student behaviour and restoring right relationships.
