Mr Cliff Powys, Deputy Headmaster Preparatory
As mentioned in last weeks newsletter, VIVO is our new Whole School Online Reward System at TSS Preparatory. We are using this platform to support our Values of Teamwork, Scholarship and Service. Boys will also be rewarded for demonstrating our ETHOS as well as Student of the Week and for our Reception boys, their ‘Shoe Lace’ awards. This online system can be viewed in real time online through any device connected to the internet. Boys will receive their log on details this week, and should be placed in their record books for safe keeping. Parents will receive their unique log in details next week once all data has been uploaded. We are well underway and even though we have had 3 year levels on Camp, our boys have been pursuing their VIVO points in the classroom and the playground. Have a look at our top boys for this week.
With the limit set of 250 points for Bronze, 500 for Silver and 750 points for Gold, we will celebrating our first award recipients soon. I have also created a very special reward beyond the Gold Certificate, called the TSS Prep Gold Pin. It will be a brotherhood of boys who are recognised as the exemplar of a TSS Preparatory Boy. A boy is eligible to receive a Gold Pin each calendar year he is here at TSS Preparatory. Their parents will be invited to an assembly to pin this award on their son. We do not expect that every boy will receive a Gold Pin in their time at TSS Prep, however we do expect that every boy aspires to be in this brotherhood. The Gold Pin will be a visual for all students, staff and families that the recipient is a compassionate, competent leader who demonstrates diligence and persistence in accomplishing his goals. He is not just a great example for other boys to follow but the exemplar that all boys should aspire to.
