House spirit builds at home
May Eddy has a serious purpose in building friendly rivalry among GSSC’s nine Houses. “We have students earning points for their House, with prizes for best attendance and weekly draws for completing assignments.”
As part of the School-Wide Positive Behaviours Support team, May is using fun incentives like canteen vouchers and promised pizza lunches to lift and maintain student engagement, particularly as remote learning continues. “By supporting their House, our students help themselves stay focused on learning.” May can’t wait for 2022 with the new college custom-designed to cater for the House system – giving every student a smaller social setting to call “home” in high school.
