Year 11 student Jennifer Wirmum has managed to bag herself an amazing Christmas present-a pair of Beats headphones! Jennifer reached 500 praise points which allowed her to buy the highest point total item in the praise point shop. Jennifer says “determination is the road to success” when asked how she managed it she says “I set out from day one with a single goal in mind, to get the Beats. I knew the points total was high, 500 is a lot of points to get in one term but I was determined to do it by Christmas. The high total didn’t scare me. I am thrilled with my achievement. Now that I’ve got what I wanted I intend donating any further points I earn to the school charity”
All students in years 7-13 can earn praise points for any number of things like excellent attendance, achievement and progress in examinations and illustrating good community spirit. The shop contains lots of exciting items to motivate students. Some of the other items bought this term include high street vouchers and vouchers to hire the sports hall at lunchtime.
Well done Jennifer, enjoy the Beats.
