Big Welcome to all our New First Year Students!🖐🖐
We were so happy to welcome our new 1st Year Students to Chanel last Thursday for their first day of secondary school! With lots of smiling nervous faces in front of me, all I could think was to try to keep this experience as normal as it always was despite the wearing of masks and restrictions in place! They did so well, kept their masks on, followed instructions and got comfortable in their new classrooms and school.
To maintain and encourage the great behaviour and enthusiasm already shown by the first years, I will begin a Token Point Reward System from Monday 7th of September. It will work like this:
Each subject teacher will assign points to each student on a weekly basis, either 0, 5, or 10! To earn these points all I ask is students to be respectful, follow class teachers instructions and do any tasks for homework or otherwise asked by the teacher.
The class with the highest number of points at the end of each week, will EACH get a Homework Pass they can use for 1 subject for ONE homework of their choice.
I hope this initiative will keep the students motivated and any encouragement from parents/guardians will be greatly appreciated!!
Wishing all my First Year Students a happy and successful Year in Chanel College,
Ms. D. Heron (Head of 1st Year).
