from Otago University come and speak to them recently. Dr Anita Dunbier an ex pupil discussed her research on
“exploring the genome to conquer cancer”, and the other three women also shared their ground breaking research

by asking many questions.

POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR FOR LEARNING (PB4L)
Respect
Personal Best
“Raise the Bar”
Junior Review
A small team of junior students have volunteered to present PB4L ideas to their peers. In Assembly
this week, Shelby Davidson and Sophie Williamson presented the group’s review on what PB4L
means to juniors. The team went around school videoing juniors doing the
‘right thing’ and interviewing them on what PB4L is all about.
We saw doors being opened, litter binned, honest
behaviour and friends respecting each other.
The juniors had fun, joined in and persevered to complete
the task. They commented on how challenging the job
Shelby Davidson
was and how they now appreciate the behind-the-scenes
hard work that the seniors have done.
This week, the team is going to complete a presentation on caring for our
school, being tidy and respecting the environment.
Mr Russell also spoke at Assembly to remind students to continue to do their
stage, and be respectful in their everyday dealings with others and in the classroom.
