On Friday afternoons we have a ‘Good Work Assembly’ in the junior hall which is also hosted by Mr McDowell to which any parents may come. Appreciation is expressed regularly in this assembly, where children and even staff and parents are thanked for their efforts, support or achievements in a variety of fields. We celebrate all types of achievement both in and out of school.
Each week, a different class shares their ‘good work’ with the rest of the school and parents. Individuals, groups and whole classes have the opportunity to show their ‘good work’ – written work, models, dance, music or art etc.. From time to time, special guests are welcomed to this assembly and recently the Fencing Club gave us a demonstration of what they have achieved in order to gain their first certificates.
Class and individual awards are given during this assembly:
The Owl Award – for personal effort, politeness, achievement, etc.
The Sports Award – for any particularly good work or effort in P.E.
Team Points Trophy – awarded to the team with the most points that week.
Head Teacher Award – given to selected children at lunchtime for a variety of reasons.
Attendance Trophy – awarded to the class with the best attendance that week.
