Mobile phones and digital technologies

For security purposes, mobile phones need to be handed into the office upon arrival at school for safe keeping during school hours. They need to be switched off and labelled with the student’s name. The sign-in sheet requires the delivery and collection time to be recorded. Collection time of devices from the office window is 3pm. 

Photographing other students or posting images or information about students at Surfers Paradise State School without appropriate permissions will be considered a serious breach of the school’s Responsible behaviour plan. 

Lost property

Clearly naming all your child's belongings will greatly help returning belongings, should anything become mislaid. All lost property is held in the front area of the tuckshop for a term. Any unamed articles will be removed at the end of each term.

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)

PBL is an evidence-based whole school approach to establishing the social culture needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. 

PBL is an organisational framework for identifying, adopting and applying evidence-based practices for building and supporting academic and social success for all students. PBL ensures that all students have the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. PBL assists schools to teach students expected social behaviours and, when implemented with integrity, it is an effective strategy for preventing school-based behaviour problems including violence and bullying. Teaching and supporting social behavioural skills creates student behavioural health and contributes to improving the effectiveness of academic support systems. 

Weekly lessons are taught on a Friday to ensure all students have a clear understanding of what is expected. 

Surfers Paradise State School has 3 expectations:

  • I am a Learner • I am Respectful • I am Safe

Our School Wide Positive Behaviour For Learning program is coordinated by the Leadership Team. Important principles that guide our work under our PBL framework include:

  • Appropriate behaviour needs to be explicitly taught
  • For some students, extra support will be required in both teaching and reinforcing such behaviour. 

Surfers Paradise State School offers interventions to support the teaching and reinforcing of appropriate behaviour at different levels. These include:

  • Universal—for all students
  • Targeted—for students requiring extra support
  • Intensive—for a small number of students displaying challenging and/or persistent inappropriate behaviour.

Details about our Code of Behaviour, School Wide Positive Behaviour For Learning (PBL) framework and interventions are documented in our Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students.
