Term 2: Attendance awards 2015

June 2, 2015

Attendance Awards Each term as part of our efforts to get boys to attend school as much as possible we award certificates. For Term 2 of this school year (Xmas– Easter) a fantastic 34 boys had 100% attendance (16% of the school) and were presented their certificates at our assembly so well done to the boys and their families.. Also 13 boys got attendance improvement certs for improvement shown this term.
Attendance teams are a school initiative written in our school attendance plan developed by our hardworking staff to encourage boys to attend school more regularly. This is the 3rd year of this plan and we have received great praise from the Education Welfare Officer for our efforts in this area and the success that we are having. Teams are comprised of boys from 1st class to 6th class and the average attendance for each team is worked out on a termly basis. The winning team for this term (Team 2) had average attendance of 53.1 days PRESENT out of 56 days. The boys have earned the reward of a trip to BIRR CASTLE and some nice lunch / snacks which we hope to organise in the coming fortnight. Keep up the great work everyone!
