Beaut Banana Citizens
Staff members hand out ‘Yellow Cards’ to students they observe following school rules in both classroom and non-classroom areas. When they ‘catch’ a student following the rules, they can record this positive behaviour and drop the Yellow Card in the designated collection box at the School Office.
On fortnightly parades, 10 cards are drawn out of the collection box. These students are able to choose a reward from a Prize Box. All cards are kept and the positive behaviours recorded in OneSchool.
All students commence on the Bronze Level and then work through Silver, Gold, and Diamond Levels. There will be a culminating event for this tiered reward program at the end of each term; this could be a school trip based upon an enjoyable and educational outing, such as a musical performance or a special afternoon tea with parents.
