Merit System 
 
 

Merit System 

Great emphasis is placed on promoting positive behaviour through our Positive Behaviour Policy. This document provides an agreed course of action amongst teachers, pupils and parents thus promoting effective teaching and learning while respecting the rights of all members of the school community. 
 
Our Positive Behaviour Policy encourages positive behaviour through a Merit System. Pupils will earn merits through good behaviour, which they can cash in to receive various privileges or rewards. These merits also contribute points to our House System where our 3 houses of Dorsey, Fane and Whitewater compete in various sporting and non-sporting competitions throughout the year and the winning house captains are awarded trophies on Prize Night.
