The Student Representative Council members contribute to the decision making on such programs.
Rewarding positive behaviour in the classroom and on the playground
Each class uses a merit award system in the classroom to support positive student management. Students move through a series of bronze, silver and gold awards that encourage positive interactions and commitment to learning.
How the awards work
Every 5 merit classroom rewards leads to a bronze award. Bronze awards are distributed by the classroom teacher. Classroom teacher keeps a tally in order to track award recipients and levels. After 3 bronze = silver (silver = 15 bronze), 2 silver = gold (2 silver = 30 bronze). Gold and silver awards will be presented to students at school assemblies and published in the newsletter and wall of fame.
At the end of each term gold recipients and their parents are invited to an afternoon tea with the principal. This is a very proud moment for students, their families and their principal. In addition fortnightly ‘teacher awards’ are handed out at assembly.
