Te piko o te māhuri, tērā te tupu o te rākau
The way a sapling is nurtured determines how strong it will grow as a tree

At Edendale, we understand the importance of creating environments for learning that are underpinned by positive relationships and inclusive values. 

We are a PB4L (Positive Behaviour For Learning) school, which means we look at behaviour and learning from a whole school, as well as an individual child perspective. The PB4L schoolwide programme is based on international evidence. 

The programme supports our school, and other schools across New Zealand, to build a culture where positive behaviour and learning is a way of life. 

It’s not about changing the students; it’s about changing the environment, systems and practices we have in place to support them to make positive behaviour choices.
