A Rewarding Week at Torpoint Community College!

A Rewarding Week at Torpoint Community College!

This week at Torpoint Community College we have been recognising and rewarding the hard work, effort  and dedication made by some of our exceptional students this year. All year long students have had the opportunity to gain merits in their planners for a number of reasons; good behaviour, hard work, a good deed, helping and supporting others and achieving or exceeding their target grade in an assessment or piece of work.

The School has held a Merit Shop all week at lunchtimes where students were able to exchange their merits for a number of small stationery items or they could buy raffle tickets for the chance of winning some special prizes kindly donated by local companies. Some of the local businesses/shops in Torpoint as well as numerous local tourist attractions and restaurants generously donated a range of prizes for our students and there were over 25 prizes kindly donated in total.

If you would like to see a full list of all the donations given and the names of the students who won them then please follow the following link:

Sainsburys kindly donated boxes of chocolates which we have used to reward tutor groups with the highest attendance and merits, and the top three students in each year group with the most merits also won £10 Amazon vouchers.

Mrs Gill Bates (Rewards Co-ordinator at the College) said  “It’s been a great week and fantastic to see individuals being recognised and rewarded for a broad range of achievements.”
