"Strive for 25" Whole School Attendance Drive Monday November 20th - December 22nd

"Strive for 25" Whole School Attendance Drive Monday November 20th - December 22nd
We are beginning a whole school Attendance Drive.
From Monday 20th November there are 25 school days remaining to the end of term.
The aim of "Strive for 25 " Attendance Drive is to encourage all students to have full attendance from Monday right upto the last day of term.
Why ? The research ( Kearney & Graczyk 2014) identifies the positive outcomes for students related to regular school attendance as :
  • Academic achievement
  • Language Development
  • Social Skills
  • Social relationships
  • Emotional Skills
  • Graduation from post primary school
As adults this then leads to:
  • Higher employment and salaries
  • Persistence
  • Problem solving ability
  • Ability to work in a group
The following guidelines/indicators of concern are interesting to note:
How will this Attendance Drive work ?

  • As a whole school approach information re the importance of attendance and goal setting will take place in Wellbeing subjects!

  • Attendance and Punctuality Merits will be given during reg

  • Once students have received 10 merits they can then claim their prize from the Yearhead!

  • They will then receive a ticket that will act as a raffle ticket to enter a draw for a trip!

  • The raffle will take place on Friday 22nd December
  • Prizes will be given on the 22nd December to all students who had 25 days of attendance

  • TY and BFL students are working designing of posters and raffle tickets
  • Daily announcements and reminders at assemblies will also take place
