Through consultation with School Council and all staff we introduced a House system. Each child is allocated to one of our four Houses; Saint Matthew, Saint Mark, Saint Luke and Saint John. Family groups all belong to the same House. When a child is awarded a merit/sticker they also receive a House token to put in the 4 House jars in their classroom. At the end of each week all tokens are added up and the House with the most tokens is celebrated in assembly on Friday afternoon.
At the end of each term the children in the House with the most winning weeks will all receive a certificate. At the end of the year a cup is awarded to the House with the most winning weeks. We will use the House system for other events and activities where children within a House will have the opportunity to work together eg. Sports Day.
