Student health and safety

At Gorokan Public School, we employ a comprehensive approach to student behaviour management, prioritising the reinforcement of positive conduct through continuous acknowledgment and recognition. This includes verbal praise, Outstanding consistent behaviour stickers, and Gorokan Gold awards. Simultaneously, we address negative behaviours with respect and fairness. Our approach is guided by Glasser’s Choice Theory, emphasising proactive measures to foster student wellbeing and manage discipline positively through the Get Happier Project.

As part of this school-wide initiative, we implement Reality Therapy principles, utilising the Get Happier Open Roads and Roundabout framework, alongside our student Behaviour Matrix, ensuring fair and equitable behaviour management. Teachers consistently apply the Classroom Behaviour Management Guide across all classrooms. By nurturing positive behaviour and maintaining consistent disciplinary measures, our approach cultivates an optimal learning environment for all students. 

We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.

We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:

Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

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 – 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.
