Wall of Fame for model pupils at Horizon Primary School


Character education is a big priority at Horizon Primary School, which has gone out of its way to recognise pupils who demonstrate good values.

Before the first Edusave character awards have been given out for exemplary behaviour, Horizon has moved to honour such pupils by placing their names and pictures on a wall near its canteen.

Each term, a pupil from each class, who is deemed to have practised management guru Stephen Covey's seven habits of highly effective people, is nominated for the board by their classmates. The nominations must be supported by their teachers.

Some of these habits include being proactive, and thinking about how a situation can benefit all parties.
