Protective Behaviours

Our school teaches students protective behaviours, aligned to the Western Australian Health curriculum.

Protective Behaviours is a practical, empowering approach to personal safety. It is a process that encourages and develops self-confidence alongside skills that help us safe. This is achieved by recognising our personal concept of safety, trusting our intuitive feelings (early warning signs) that tell us when we are feeling unsafe and developing strategies for self-protection. The Protective Behaviours process links safety with fun and excitement and an adventurous approach to life.

Primary teachers teach our students the following topics:

  • Exploring skills for life: Kindergarten and Pre-Primary
  • Developing skills for life: Years 1 and 2
  • Establishing skills for life: Year 3 and 4
  • Rehearsing skills for life: Year 5 and 6

Protective Behaviours also has a great resource for parents.
