Our MPS STARs are at the centre of our Vision for teaching and learning for MPS children. Being Sporting, Trustworthy, Accepting & Responsible are the personal qualities we believe will ensure children learn, work cooperatively and play alongside each other successfully.
STAR Reward System – Classroom Years 0 – 4: Whole Class Certificates
Students Year 0-4 will work on a whole class certificate reward system. Positive behaviours within their certificate are explicitly taught and students work together to gain collector cards in each of the Sporting, Trustworthy, Accepting and Responsible areas. Classes then decide how they would like to be rewarded as a “whole class effort”.
Years 5 – 6: Individual Certificates
Students Year 5-6 will work on individual certificates over a two year period (gaining collector cards as they get their behaviour goals signed off). On completion on their certificate, a STAR Band will be rewarded.
STAR Reward System – Playground
Teachers reward appropriate behaviour in the playground by giving out Stellar Cards.
Once Stellar Cards have been received, their card will be placed in the House Colour Box and count for house points for the week.
Each week, 20 students will be drawn (at random) and rewarded with “STAR time”, which will be taken after kura huis. House leaders take turns to supervise this.
