Cannington Community College is a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school. The PBS model ensures consistency of behaviour expectations from Kindergarten to Year 10. The emphasis is placed on acknowledging positive behaviours and supporting un-met expectations with a teaching focus. Negative behaviours are seen as a skill deficit that needs to be explicitly taught, as we do when a child cannot read or spell.

The College has a Behaviour Matrix that clearly states the behaviours that both staff and students are expected to demonstrate throughout the different areas of the school. These are linked to our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Excellence and Pride.

Our Values

The students chose four animals, local to the Cannington area, to align with each value.


Respect - The Long-Neck Turtle was chosen as it represents determination and persistence in getting things done. This also means including others and demonstrating respect for the many cultures that make up our College.


Responsibility - The Motorbike frog was chosen for its link to being responsible for our natural environment. Where there are an abundance of frogs, the environment is healthy. The frog also represents transition and transformation, indicating the changes that our College will go through on the PBS journey.

Excellence - The Corella is a frequent visitor to our school grounds. It represents a fearlessness in endeavours and demonstration of success. Students who demonstrate excellence, set high standards for themselves and are positive role models for their peers.


Pride - The Black Swan was chosen for its link to Western Australia as our state emblem and for the grace with which it holds itself as it moves through the water.  They are a representation of faith and loyalty. Students who demonstrate pride in their school are loyal and united.

Behaviour acknowledgement & recognition

Behaviour acknowledgement & recognition Students receive verbal praise and acknowledgment when behaviour expectations are met. They may also receive a Faction Token, indicating the value they have demonstrated. The tokens are placed in collection boxes, in the canteen area for Secondary students and in each classroom for Primary students. Tokens are recorded on the 'House Points' system, linking the token to the individual student as well as their faction. Certificates are awarded when students receive 25, 50, 100, 150 and 200 tokens. The tokens are placed in year group containers. A weekly raffle takes place where a token is drawn from each year group. Prices range from canteen vouchers, special privileges, toys and books. At the end of each term, a major raffle for each year group takes place where Secondary students receive gift vouchers and Primary students receive a prize pack.
