Student code of conduct
Education Queensland is committed to provisions that ensure all young Queenslanders have a right to and receive a quality education.
To achieve this, our school has a Student Code of Conduct that respects the following rights:
the rights of all students to learn
the rights of teachers to teach
the rights of all to be safe
Our plan aligns with the national framework for values education in Australian schools.
All members of our school community work in partnership with parents to develop self management skills in our students, so that our young people leave Benowa State High School as resilient, confident and responsible young adults.
School beliefs about behaviour and learning
Benowa State High School’s teachers and students try daily to live out the words of the school motto of “Striving and caring”. Ours is a house of learning, where respect matters most, respect of self, respect of others, respect of the environment and property.
Responsible Thinking Room (RT)
Students who disrupt the learning of other students in the classroom will be sent to the responsible thinking room. They will be supervised in this room by the behaviour management teacher who will help them to think responsibly, to prepare a contract of behaviour and to negotiate with their teacher to re-enter the classroom.
