Promoting Positive Behaviour at J. R. Henderson

Character Education

~ Respect yourself, others and the environment ~

What is your character?  If you are a student at James R. Henderson, then you know about Character Education! Embedded throughout our daily practices are the ‘Six Pillars of Character Education’ as shown in the box to the right. There will be many opportunities for peer interaction to promote student learning  to help guide you as you continue to develop your own sense of core values.
Take responsibility for your character by doing your best to develop and demonstrate good character traits. At Henderson, we believe in good character and we wear our colours of good character proudly.

Expected Behaviour


As a student at J. R. Henderson Public School, you are expected to:

  • treat all people with respect and dignity, and in a positive, supportive manner
  • demonstrate tolerance for individual differences, ethnicity, race, religion, and gender

  • be courteous and respectful to all staff members and everyone in the school environment

  • interview with the student and a recording of the incident
  • detention of the student (at recesses)
  • withdrawal of a school privilege
