The Peninsula Way - Our Values & PB4L


We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning school. PB4L is all about teaching children the right behaviour, just like we teach any other subject at school. 

Our ethos is simple: "If a student can't read, we teach; if they can't swim, we teach; if they can't multiply, we teach; if they can't behave, we teach." 

Weekly, we focus on behaviours aligned with our core values: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience—pillars of Peninsula Primary. Students are given the opportunity to discuss and share ideas around feelings and outcomes of certain behaviours, both positive and challenging.


The positive outcomes we see through being a PB4L school include;

  • Students are focused on learning with less distractions
  • Students regularly receive verbal praise and recognition for positive behaviour
  • Students recognise how to communicate and interact with each other respectfully
  • Students take responsibility for their behaviour when they make mistakes
  • Students receive ‘R’ stickers that acknowledge their behaviour, that go onto their sticker chart. They are awarded once they gain 25, 50, 75 and 100 stickers
  • Students receive certificates at team assemblies and school assemblies for positive behaviour and learning in class
  • Positive behaviour is celebrated in class and across the school
  • Teachers on duty at break times give out ‘R’ stickers as well to acknowledge positive friendships and game playing.

Following our values, we embrace the whakataukī:


"Manaakitia te tangata, ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa no hea" 

"Treat people respectfully, regardless of who they are and where they come from."
