Bower Park has recently launched a rewards programme for Year 8 students. Teachers have been asked to stop their lessons a few minutes early in order to nominate 3 ‘Stars of the Class’ for that period. These awards have been given every lesson of every day since Monday, 25th March – that’s over 600 awards! As you would imagine, some students have received multiple awards, with Gracie Hickman being given the most during the week. However, over 100 students (out of 145) have been given at least one award. That clearly shows that Year 8 had an excellent attitude to learning during the week. We also noticed that the number of praise points went up significantly and the number of consequences went down! I have been very impressed by the way Year 8 students responded. As a result, they have had a fantastic week.
The students are asked to deposit their awards in a box in my office, so that I can see who has received recognition for their positive learning. It has been a pleasure to see so many arrive, and I am very proud of their achievement.
We drew out winners for prizes in the assembly on Tuesday, 2nd April; these winners are shown below. Well done all to Year 8, but especially our winners this week. We will do a new draw next Tuesday with even more prizes.
