Pittville Press: Good behaviour gets rewarded
A NEW reward scheme has been put in place at Pittville School, where students will receive a virtual currency – Vivo points – for pieces of outstanding work and behaviour.
These points, roughly equal to 1p each, can be exchanged in the vShop for anything from mobile phone vouchers, Frisbees and stationery, to mini fridges and keyboards.
The scheme replaces the old house point system, though there are differing views in the school as to its merits.
"I think it's a really good idea," said Caroline Mubayiwa, a Year 7 student. "It gives us even more reason to work hard and do our best in school."

However Year 10 student Mark Squires had a different point of view.
"I think it's not fair on the older students," he said.
"It will be hard for us to earn enough points to get anything worthwhile. It's different for those in Year 7 who are just starting the school."
Nevertheless, overall the feedback from teachers and students seems to be positive with the students deserving the bigger rewards the Vivo points will offer them.
