Promoting Positive Behaviour in CPSetanta

We are hoping to reinvigorate our Merit System through a Student Led Competition.

When will it take place?

Dates: S2 Week 1 – Week 4

Monday 28th Nov – Monday 19th Dec

The initial competition will start next Monday, S2 Week 1, and run for 4 weeks leading up to

the Christmas Break.

If successful, then the competition will run again after the Christmas Break.

How will it be administrated?

  1. Each teacher will be given a Stamp to use when issuing Merits in the Journal
  2. An updated list of 'How to attain a Merit' will be shared with Teachers, Students & Parents (see below)
  3. Teachers are to stamp a Merit on the Merit Section of the Students Journal....Additional pages for S2 will be made available to Tutors (if a student's page becomes full then a new page is added to the Journal)
  4. At the end of each week, during Tutorial the CLASS REP will count all the Merits achieved by the Tutorial Group. Merits counted will be crossed off to ensure accuracy each week
  5. The Class Reps will then report the Merit Count to the TLP Team Member associated with their specific year group (see below)
  6. A 'Merit Competition Wall' will be established in the Canteen area and updated weekly with the running number of merits for each tutor group.

What is the competition goal/ prize?

The goal of the competition is to reinvigorate the Merit System already established in our

school, which in turn should promote positive behaviour both in our classrooms and in

extracurricular activities.

The prize for students will be a Tutor Party for the winning Tutor Group in each year on the

last week before the Christmas Holidays.

TLP Team Members Associated with each Year Group:

  • 1st Year – Mrs O’Neill
  • 2nd Year – Ms Buckley
  • 3rd Year – Dr Bowman
  • TY – Mr O’Domhnaill
  • 5th Year – Ms Guiney & Ms McKnight
  • 6th Year – Mr Shorthall

Food Appeal Rang Naoise

Rang Naoise is doing a food appeal for Dublin's Lion Club. They are looking for food to give to charity that will help the homeless. Students from their class will be going around classes to collect the food. A merit will be awarded per item to students who hand in food. The food should be non-perishable and sealed. Examples of food will be on posters around the school and students will go around classrooms to talk about the appeal and what foods are allowed starting on Monday 5th. The deadline for the food appeal will be Monday the 19th of December and Tuesday the 20th of December
