Welcome to the home of the Casebrook REP
Casebrook Intermediate is a PB4L school (Positive Behaviour For Learning). We believe that positive behaviour in our school ensures better academic achievements for all our students.
To ensure this happens we have three expectations that every student is asked to adhere to as best they can, as often as they can:
RESPECT - WHAKAUTE
EXCELLENCE - PANEKIRETANGA
PERSEVERANCE - HIRINGA
At Casebrook we demonstrate our expectations through:
RESPECT (Whakaute) - for yourself, your peers, your school, your community.
EXCELLENCE (Panekiretanga) - strive to achieve your best, celebrate success.
PERSEVERANCE (Hiringa) - set goals, show determination, thrive in adversity, adapt to change.
At Casebrook we distribute REP cards when students display these expected behaviours. This happens frequently...so much so each year we hand out over 20,000 REP cards!
Students will get REP cards for doing normal things, not only exemplary stuff. Students will talk to you about getting REP cards for being at school on time, ordering their lunch correctly, wearing uniform, being organised, doing school work, reading books, saying hello, locking their bike - the list goes on!
In 2016 our students will be aiming to receive 30 REP cards for each of the REP expectations over their two years at Casebrook.
15 REP cards will earn a student a half-way certificate from their teacher.
30 REP cards will earn a student a Respect, Excellence or Perseverance badge in their house colour. We make a big deal of these in assemblies.
Our students will be aiming to receive 40 REP cards for each of the REP expectations over their two years at Casebrook. 40 REP cards will earn a student a Respect, Excellence or Perseverance badge in their house colour. We make a big deal of these in assemblies.
Teachers send home postcards to invite parents of students who achieve a badge so they can join us in our celebration assemblies.
The incentive for students who have received all REP badges is to gain a Casebrook Super REP badge. These are awarded to students who receive 60 REP cards in each of the expectations during their two years at Casebrook.
