We like to celebrate the successes that our students achieve each week by selecting one student from each Skills for Learning class to be our Learner of the Week. There are three levels to this award – bronze, silver and gold. On top of it being announced in assembly each Friday, students are given a star-shaped badge in the appropriate colour, some stationery, 30 Vivos, their name goes up on the rewards board in the main school building and on the school website, and a letter goes home to their parents to let them know of their child’s success. This year we are also showing off our students on our ‘Celebrity Spotlight’ board, so that they are actually celebrated in Skills for Learning itself.

I get to spend Friday afternoons updating the board with the names of our new winners – a great way to end our week! This week I had lots of names to add, as we hadn’t been able to use our assembly time to celebrate them. Well done to our new Bronze Learners of the Week!
