  Merimbula Public School, PBS Award Winners MPS students celebrate their exemplary behaviour with a guided tour of Rock Pools.

A group of excited students from Merimbula Public School visited Merimbula Beach Caravan Park on Friday, 22nd June. They were taken on a Rock Pool Walk and Dinosaur Bone Hunt by activity coordinators Chloe and Carly.

The visit was organised by the school as a ‘Positive Behaviour For Success (PBS) Celebration', for those students who had achieved two ‘Value' certificates this year for consistently demonstrating the school's values. The Positive Behaviour for Success program incorporates the school's four values: Respect, Responsibility, Fairness and Care.

The students also enjoyed time on the jumping pillow, playing in the games room and receiving a special treat - their own show bag.

The highlight of the visit was the filming of a segment for Channel 7's Sydney Weekender. "The behaviour reward was great for the students who have consistently demonstrated exemplary behaviour all year" shared one of the PBS Committee members and teacher Lorraine Dykes. "I am sure all the students will be eagerly awaiting the screening of the program on Saturday, 11th August".

The teachers who attended the reward day commented that the staff at the park were extremely friendly and helpful, and made the day a special event for all the students who attended. "Thank you Merimbula Beach Holiday Park for your hospitality, and to Shae for organising all the activities" shared Ms Dykes.

Merimbula Public School students will continue to get presented PBS awards for positive behaviour at their fortnightly school assemblies.
