Can you help….
Many of you will be aware of our ‘shout-outs’ which students receive for a variety of reasons that reflect our values of Manaakitanga Be Respectful, Mana Have Pride and Rangatiratanga Strive to Excel. Once students have received these they go in a fortnightly draw for a canteen voucher, and an end-of-term draw for a ‘bigger’ prize.
For 2020 we are moving this system onto a digital platform. This will mean that students and caregivers will receive a notification after a certain number of ‘shout-outs’ have been received.
We are looking for suitable acknowledgement prizes to support our system for the ‘shout-out’ draws. If you have any suggestions or contacts for prizes that may be donated we would be very appreciative.
Please contact Debbie Jarrett email@example.com if you have any suggestions.
