Positive Behaviour for Learning

Emerald State High School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.


This page will be updated with current news, policies and procedures that relate to our Positive Behaviour for Learning system.

This Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students is designed to facilitate high standards of behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community.

Reinforcing expected school behaviour - VIVO
At Emerald State High School, communication of our key messages about behaviour is backed up through reinforcement, which provides students with feedback for engaging in expected school behaviour.
Staff members use the online – Vivo Rewards System throughout all aspects of the school day to recognise students when they observe them following school rules. When they ‘catch’ a student following the rules they can choose to give them points on the student’s Vivo account. When students are given Vivos, they can access their account online and view their progress. Parents are also given a login to their student’s account to acknowledge their progress.  When a student is rewarded, they can use those points to purchase in school rewards and prizes that are delivered to the school.  When a student uses their points, they then forfeit that tally. 
To access their Vivo account, view their points, and use their points in the Vivo shop, students need their unique Vivo details. If students don't know their details, they can let their PC teacher know. Please see the link to more information about accessing the account.
