Congratulations to all of Year 8 and the Year 8 Tutor team for a fantastic ePraise fundraising day, raising money for charities Teenage Cancer Trust and Norie House, Association for the Homeless.
The event in the small hall was electric! A fabulous amount of choice on the at the cake stall and raised £81 from the sale of the cakes. A MASSIVE bucket of copper has been collected and sponsor money from the row and swim is still to be counted!
Total of money raised will be counted as soon as possible accounted on the ePraise home page. The bar has been set high by this year group for the ePraise fundraising. Now it’s time to start donating your ePraise points….
— Year 8 e-Praise Day
2nd – 11th June 2015
As part of the Year 10 work-related course, I am planning to take these students on a section of the Camino walk across northern Spain.
The purpose of the “expedition” is to help these students develop greater self-esteem and to promote team skills.
It is a physical and mental challenge but also a spiritual one in the widest sense of the word and will hopefully provide a life-changing experience.
We are therefore holding a bingo evening, details can be found below. I do hope you can support us.

Heathfield’s new school rewards system is designed to motivate students by recognizing the great things they do. Students are awarded praise points online, making things a lot quicker and easier than the traditional paper-based school reward systems. It’s not just about saving time though – this system is jam packed with features such as leaderboards, achievements, milestones, certificates, draws and charitable donations which help make motivating students easy.
Visit epraise – Heathfield school to find out more.
Please note: Parents must register their email address with school before they can register and log on on ePraise. Contact Natasha Rand if you require assistance.
