School Vision Statement
Mullumbimby High School will support all our students to achieve success as lifelong learners. Through the creation of rich learning opportunities, within an inclusive and caring environment that celebrates the diversity of our community and builds upon school traditions, we will ensure our school is recognised for
outstanding educational programs. Our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) focus on respect, responsibility and learning will continue to underpin the school culture and reflect the positive behaviour expectations of the whole school community.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – 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.
The school’s three key expectations and a matrix of expected behaviours in all settings guide all interactions. These key expectations are embedded into school policies, welfare structures, school planning and also form the language of instruction and expectation for students and staff.
The explicit behaviour expectations at Mullumbimby High School which are firmly linked to learning achievement, act as a roadmap to success for students. Our students flourish under this system and the school’s academic attainment and positive school culture have continued to improve. This positive culture for learning combined with constant reward and recognition of student success results in a safe and effective learning environment for all.
Mullumbimby High School’s values are:

Student Participation and Leadership
Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.
Mullumbimby High School has a proud tradition of providing extra-curricular, sporting and leadership activities. We value and encourage student voice within teaching and learning and endeavour to involve students in conversations and decisions about what and how they learn. At Mullumbimby High School we
offer leadership opportunities within the classroom, school and wider community, including Student Representative Council (SRC), AIME Indigenous mentoring program, and School, House/Sporting Vice Captains and Captains. We provide opportunities for student participation and leadership that demonstrates respect
for cultural background and celebrates difference and diversity.
