The puppets are used by teachers to role-play classroom rules and routines and to demonstrate how students can calm themselves when they are having difficulty.

April 30, 2008 - As part of a grant to deliver positive student behaviour programs, Academic Consultants with Sudbury Catholic Schools introduced an innovative student behavioural program termed The Incredible Years. The focus is on training teacher mentors and group leaders in strengthening preventive classroom management strategies. This new program also serves to promote children’s prosocial behaviour and school readiness (reading skills) in order to reduce classroom aggression and non-cooperation with peers and teachers.

In addition, the program highlights ways by which teachers can effectively collaborate with parents to support their school involvement and promote consistency from home to school.

The Incredible Years program developed by Dr. Carolyn Webster-Stratton is a research-based, proven effective program that has been running internationally for several years with much success.

Classroom management training is a practical strategy filled approach, which gives much insight into working with students who are disobedient, highly aggressive, inattentive and hyperactive.

The Sudbury Catholic Schools’ Incredible Years team consisting of Lucie Cullen, Diana Bozzo-Salvador (Principals), Kim Taylor-Horeck (Attendance Counsellor) and Alice Desormeaux (Teacher) will be making a presentation to the Board later this year to highlight the positive impact of this program.
