Learning for Life - Whāia te mātauranga kei tua

PB4L is a Ministry of Education programme where students are taught appropriate behaviour that will ultimately benefit their learning and achievement.

This is an international programme based around the idea that behaviour changes as circumstances change.

We have a rewards programme that operates all of the time and acknolwledges the students' postivie behaviour. 

Behaviour is about choices. As a school we are consistent with our expectations and consequences to assist the children in making positive choices.

Putaruru College's PB4L programme is called DARE
