The acronym SOAR stands for; SELF, OTHERS, ATTITUDE and RESPECT.
These are the values that we believe are important for all staff and students. We believe that promoting and demonstrating these values are conducive to a positive learning environment. SOAR was created from the ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning’ (PB4L) initiative introduced by the ministry which we started in 2012.
It is a school wide integrated initiative which aims to promote appropriate behaviour in a positive manner that is non-threatening and supportive of all students and staff. It aims to minimise problematic behaviours and maximise and celebrate positive social and academic student behaviours.For more on PB4L or SOAR click here for the MAC Resources webpage
