Student Rewards Scheme

OSCA REWARDS 2015

At OSCA we aim to create a culture where praise, reward and achievements are accepted and celebrated. Therefore we have created our new OSCAR’S reward system, where students will be rewarded for a whole range of activities, both academic and pastoral.

The students created the new name and helped develop the logo. They wanted to show that each colour of the logo represented the colour of the house system, which symbolises unity between the houses.

Students will receive OSCAR rewards for the following categories and each reward will represent a monetary value. Once a student has reached the minimum target of 500 points they can if they wish redeem each block of 500 points for a shopping voucher. They may of course keep saving their points until they wish to cash in a higher value in one go. Also students can to use their points to help fund trips or help pay for their school prom.
