Last week, during community assemblies the Merit Lottery was drawn. Every merit earned last term resulted in an entry and with around 10,000 merits being dished out each week, everybody was in with a chance of winning. Merits are given for a wide range of reasons including attendance, effort, improvement in behaviour and excellent work.
