Our Award System - How
Does it Work?
staff have collectively decided on the use of a token reward system with the
each teacher will have a maximum of 25 ‘bee tokens’ to be handed out each
students will be given a ‘Bee Token’ as a reward for their correct behaviour
each student will have four pages in their hive booklet – one for each
expectation – (Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Learner)
the student must take the token to their classroom teacher, who will
exchange for a stamp on their hive grid booklet.
each grid will have 20 spaces. For each token, the child would get a stamp
in their hive booklet.
the hive grids are located either under the child’s desk, on a wall display
or maintained by the class teacher.
once the 20 spaces have been stamped the child will receive a certificate
for that expectation. eg. Safe.
the certificate will be presented either at a Monday morning assembly or
each student who receives a certificate will have their photograph displayed
on classroom windows under appropriate headings – Safe, Responsible,
when students have received a certificate for any one of the expectations
they will choose a prize or a privilege from the ‘bee hive’ a prize box to
be located in Mr Laundry’s office.
when students have received a certificate for all four expectations they
will be entitled to attend a morning tea with Mr Simpson.
