Play is the Way

WPS is proud to be a role-model school for the implementation of the "Play is the Way" (PITW) program in the Riverland. PITW is a fundamental tool in the school's Behaviour Education and Self Management (BESM) approach. We see BESM as a responsibility of the entire school community. Students, families and teachers need to have a clear understanding of what is expected, in regards to how we treat each other, to ensure a welcoming learning environment that is supportive and safe.

"Behaviour education is most effective when built into, not onto curriculum"

Our belief is that PITW is an effective way to achieve our objective of socially and emotionally competent children.

"Behaviour is shaped by the sum total of regular and frequent lessons that create small but meaningful changes over a long and sustained period of time." - Wilson McCaskill (PITW Founder)

Training students to be in control of their thoughts, feelings and actions allows them to harness their many and varied abilities and skills to pursue the abundant pathways to success in life.
