Positive behaviour scheme gets a boost
March 1st, 2017
Motueka schools are giving the Community Congratulations ('Gotcha Being Good') Card initiative another push this term, and want to get more local businesses involved.
The 'Gotcha Card' scheme is run by the four local PB4L ('Positive Behaviour for Learning') schools - Lower Moutere School, Motueka High School, Motueka South School and Parklands School.
"The goal is to help spread the high standards of behaviour we foster at school, into the community," says Linda Beatson, Acting Principal of Motueka South School.
"We would really appreciate local businesses encouraging school-aged children (including high schoolers) to use their best positive behaviour when out and about in town."
Businesses need only stamp the back of each card and present one to each school-aged child displaying positive behaviour, using their manners, being considerate etc. The students then return the cards to their school and exchange the card for their own school's token.
This term, schools will visit and distribute 'Gotcha Card' supplies only to businesses that have supported the scheme in the past, but any interested business is welcome to contact one of the schools listed above, to join in.
