  • At Maunu School we reward behaviours that we want to encourage by giving children Values Cards. 
  • Students are given Values cards during the week and each fortnight one student from each house is drawn out at assembly, and they receive the house Values cup, which they hold for two weeks until the next assembly. These cups remain at school.
  • To celebrate and acknowledge the students’ successes we publish their photos in our Maunu School Newsletter.
