HEART Awards

The school HEART programme gives heart tickers to students who have shown the HEART values. Upon receipt of seven ‘tickers’ students are sent a postcard home. All students who received a postcard home are put into the termly draw for prizes purchased by the HEART committee. 2 prizes went to year 9 students because of the large number of year 9 students who gained 7 ‘tickers’. Mr Smith has received a number of recipients since the holidays but these will be in the term 4 draw. Postcards cannot be sent at the moment as we are waiting for more from the printers. There will still be a draw for senior students this term as well as for the juniors so ‘keep on ticking’.Term 3 draw recipients are: Amanda Stoltz, Heidi Sextus, Iulian Tudor, Toby Nicholls, Luke Bulman, Bradley Cave. Congratulations and we look forward to more recipients this term.Heart Committee
