Wirreanda Secondary School works towards developing relationships with students and families to promote positive and responsible behaviour.
The Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) is accountable to the community, through the Minister, for managing student behaviour and for creating safe, orderly, productive and successful learning communities.
Here at Wirreanda Secondary School we believe that preparing young people to be citizens who participate and contribute to society in positive and meaningful ways is a key responsibility. We do this through establishing and modelling appropriate behaviour and respectful relationships and by conducting fair and considered responses to conflict, inappropriate behaviour and bullying and harassment.
Recently we have adopted a Restorative Practice approach for our school which emphasises the importance of sound, healthy relationships between all members of the school community. From this perspective behaviour problems are viewed as a breakdown in relationships and the process by which we restore these relationships is through developing an understanding of the impact and consequences of our actions.
With this in mind our Student Engagement and Responsible Behaviour policies are aimed at developing safe and inclusive learning environments so all learners have the best opportunity to strive for excellence and reach their potential. They are also designed to support and promote our school values of RESPECT, HONESTY, RESPONSIBILITY and ACHIEVEMENT.
