Japanese Mountains:

ES Teachers sort classes initially into groups to achieve balance of:

Academic ability
Sporting ability

Lists then passed onto MS and HS to complete (siblings organized into same house)

House Captains

2 Students per House, per school
Help organize and promote House events
Keep displays organized

Recognition and Acknowledgment of Seisen Profiles

An objective of the House System is also to promote the Seisen Profile
How do students reflect on attributes?
How do we ensure they (and we) are recognizing when others display the attributes?
Consistent approach/agreements within schools
Decisions to be made within schools of how this could be done (e.g. would this count towards the House Cup?)
Any Questions?
"Evidence suggests systems of reward that are all the same for all pupils within a school can help to define behavioural expectations about the school system, acknowledge positive behaviour, and provide consistent consequences that are perceived to be fair. Providing a system that is transparent and robust increases the liklihood of this."
Dr Laura and Ann Merrett 2013
