Brandon PRIDE 4 Learning 

The matrix of Brandon PRIDE 4 learning expectations is now published. All students have been taught the expectations and they are displayed around the school. Should students forget and find themselves in trouble the expectations will be used as the base for the conversations that are needed. Punishment is not part of what we believe in – but owning the behaviour and repairing any hurt is.
