P – Positive Emotions
We know that when we experience positive emotions that we are more open to learning and working with others. Each day we have calm time scheduled so that we can pause and check in with ourselves first, then enabling us to check in with others.
E – Engagement
We have engaging school activities and lessons where we know what we are learning and why we are learning it. Students can articulate the learning intention and success criteria for each lesson.
R – Relationships
We thrive on positive relationships. We listen to each other to learn and understand another person’s perspective. We value different people’s stories and cultures and we celebrate diversity in our Mildura South Primary Community.
M –Meaningful
Our learning and experiences at Mildura South Primary are in the context of growing our whole selves. We are taught strategies of mindfulness so that as we pause and notice we can identify the meaning of our learning and tasks in context.
A – Accomplish
We are successful at Mildura Primary School because together we work hard. We support one another through challenges and we listen to each other identify ‘what works’ and ‘why it works’. We celebrate our accomplishments, knowing that it is only through making our own choices and mistakes that we can truly grow.
