Students rewarded for gaining top ePraise points
On Friday 13 December, students placed in the top five for positive ePraise points were rewarded with a trip to Reading Winter on Ice Fair, at Forbury Gardens.
During the last half term, UTC Reading has introduced the system of ePraise, whereby teachers and college staff can award students positive points for their behaviour within college. This can include being kind to others, producing outstanding work in lessons, volunteering at events, helping around college and generally being an active part of the college community.
This system has been a roaring success and has been a valuable lesson in focussing on the small daily positive contributions that so many of our students give.
Students in the college ‘companies’ Hawking and Anderson were in the top five places within their team for positive points acquired during the last term and were taken to Forbury Gardens for some skating and general festive cheer!
Thank you to Laroux Hutchinson for organising the trip and congratulations to the students who came top!
