Icy poles and play reward attendance
Karratha Primary School students who scored a 100 per cent in attendance so far this term had their commitment recognised at an attendance rewards day last week.
A group of 128 children out of more than 300 in the school made the grade and enjoyed icy poles and an extra 40 minutes of play outside of class as their reward.
Karratha Primary School principal Will Davis said staff wanted to reward regular attenders, even at this early stage of the year, because a lot of students and their families had been making the effort to be present.
“It sets the tone for the year,” he said.
“It’s a great achievement to be here every day, even for seven weeks. It’s a motivator that shows if you work hard on attending, even if you can’t come every day, you’ll be acknowledged and recognised.”
Mr Davis said staff plan to acknowledge different types of student attendance achievements, on future rewards days this year.
Karratha Primary School star attenders Luisa Avaloss-Centurion, 7, Gwen Diego, 7, Ensign Elkington, 7, Mitch Hamilton, 7, and Jada Hansen, 9 enjoy their attendance rewards day.
