Mount Pleasant Primary
endeavours to create opportunities for learners to develop their leadership
Towards the end of each year, prefects are elected from the Grade 6 group through votes received from learners, as well as the teachers. These prefects attend a leadership camp which promotes teamwork and leadership qualities.
The prefects are assigned duties which include maintaining discipline in the passages, on the playgrounds and at the tuck shop. They also assist the teachers in the classrooms during break times on rainy days.
From the group of prefects,
head leaders are elected, who give
report backs every week during our assembly meetings.
Monitors are appointed each
year to assist within the library. The monitors work hard and are an essential
help in the general running of the library.
Learners are chosen from the Grade 6 class every year to ensure safety on our road inside the school every morning before school. Our learners receive training from the traffic department, as well as the equipment needed to perform their task.
Computer Centre Monitors
Learners showing an aptitude for technology and accountability are selected to assist with all things within the centre and will be utilised to assist other learners during project research.
Monitors are chosen to do duty in the tuckshop. Here they serve learners during break times.
A maximum of two children per class, who perform well academically or show positive behaviour, are rewarded every second week, by receiving a Mountie Award certificate during our formal assembly meetings.
Outstanding behaviour inside and outside the classroom is encouraged and rewarded in the form of Merit badges. Any Grade 4 – 7 learner, who has received no more than 2 “Level One” transgression entries in the class disciplinary file throughout the term, receives a merit badge.
terms are distinguished by different colour badges:
