The Aquinas Foundation asked Southwold primary School what they would like as a reward and incentive for the children in regards to attendance. They said that if we could provide a dance workshop that would be amazing, as they have lots of pupils both girls and boys who really enjoy dancing in their spare time.
So the following is what the Aquinas Foundation provided for them… A Street dance session for the class who received the best attendance for the term.
“When we have class rewards, it encourages the children to work as part of a team. We are extremely appreciative of any support that can be given for us to offer these rewards to children and want to say a big thank you to Aquinas for their support so far.” Rebecca Stone (Learning Mentor for behaviour and attendance)
Comments from the Class 3 children
“The street dance session was awesome and brilliant!”
“It was really fun! I loved it when we did the “house” dance”
“Amy and Rosie taught us how to do the moves in a fun way, which we really enjoyed!”
The Aquinas Foundation also provided the school with a brand new mountain bike which they used as an attendance incentive. The lucky winner was 9 year old Ashandro and this is what he had to say about winning;
“I felt proud when I won the bike because I had been in school every day. I enjoy riding on it. I have always had good attendance and it is important to me so that I can learn more at school.”
We would like to say a huge well done to Class 3 who won the Street Dance session and also to Ashandro for his fantastic attendance over the year.
