Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.
The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.
The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.
Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
Rylstone Public School fully embraces any opportunity to encourage student leadership in its many forms. Our senior grades attend Young Leaders day in Sydney and GRIP leadership, as well as a variety of leadership days held locally at various schools.
We run a Peer Support program every year which provides ALL senior students an opportunity to lead.
We have an active Student Representative Council. Our SRC fundraise and provides fun days for the school such as 'Bike Day', 'market Day' and Easter hunts. They organise lunchtime games and have even put on a fete in the school grounds.
