OBERON High School's year adviser Cameron Inwood welcomed back the 2019 year 12 group to their final first day of school on Thursday, January 31.
Students started studies for the second cycle of their HSC in November 2018, with some already completing assessment tasks for their preliminary studies. This year the students will be well-prepared for the HSC process, having completed half of their HSC in 2018.
Wednesday, January 30 was the first day of school for year seven students. They have settled in quickly and there were confident smiles and lots of excitement as they arrived. This is largely due to the extensive transition program run during the later part of 2018.
Year seven adviser Shannon Marshall was a familiar friendly face.
That’s the ticket
IN continuing with Oberon High’s new PBL (Positive Behaviour for Learning) policy and the rewards of Benny’s Bucks, week nine in 2018 saw all students who received Benny’s Bucks go into the draw for a free movie ticket.
One student’s name was drawn from Benny’s Bucks recipients for each house group and the winners were Abe Rowe (Abercrombie), Michael Mijovic (Tuglow) and Emily Roberts (Werong).
These individual rewards follow close on the heels of reward barbecues, which are for each house group as they reach a running total of 600 Benny’s Bucks.
The PBL team feel it is important to give students tangible rewards for the positive behaviour in addition to the sometimes unseen but more important benefits of a positive learning environment.
