Carew Academy is split into five houses. The colour school tie you wear will show people which house you are in:
Over each term the houses compete to earn the most Merits. Students earn Merits for:
A. fantastic attendance
B. demonstrating good behaviour towards others
C .challenging themselves
At the end of each term the house with the most Merits is the winner.
Every time you are awarded a merit one is awarded to your House too!
You can earn rewards depending on how many merits you earn:
Bronze – 20 merits
Silver – 40 merits
Gold – 60 merits
Platinum – 100 merits
Rewards include pens, pencils, colouring books, puzzles, small games, toys, vouchers, film and popcorn mornings and trips out to the cinema or for lunch.
Postcards are awarded for kind choices and positive behaviour. They are mailed home for your parents/carers to see. Every time you get a postcard you are awarded a Merit too.
