Initiative Involvement at Northland College.

At Northland College we believe passionately in developing our students to the best of their ability. We are always striving to improve the nature of the learning and achievement in our school. As such we are involved in a number of initiatives and programmes. Examples of these are listed below:

  • the Ministry of Education's PB4L School-Wide initiative
  • the Te Tai Tokerau Trades Academy
  • Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme

The outline below is from the Ministry of Education's Te Kete Ipurangi website:

PB4L School-Wide looks at behaviour and learning from a whole-of-school as well as an individual child perspective. The framework is based on international evidence.

The Positive Behaviour for Learning School-Wide framework, otherwise known as PB4L School-Wide, is helping New Zealand schools build a culture where positive behaviour and learning is a way of life. The framework can be tailored to your school’s own environment and cultural needs.

It’s not about changing the students; it’s about changing the environment, systems and practices you have in place to support them to make positive behaviour choices.

PB4L School-Wide is based on the Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework developed at the University of Oregon in the 1990s. PBIS is now in thousands of schools across the US and there are over 600 School-Wide schools in New Zealand.
