To reinforce our PBL expectations we have introduced a refinement to our merit system. Now known as the ‘Merit Star', students receive a merit for their efforts, attached to their work, however the teacher now records that they have issued a Merit Star electronically. So, no more merit certificates at the bottom of the school bag! It will also mean that our records are more accurate and as a result we should see a strong increase in the number of students being recognised for their efforts. Early signs are that the initiative is already very successful.
