CARES Programme

CARES.png We are very proud of our students at Duffin’s Bay Public School and the care that they show to their studies, school, and community. To celebrate these efforts and to offer our parents the opportunity to recognize their child for the care that they regularly demonstrate, we offer the Duffin’s Bay C.A.R.E.S. Program. When your child has shown Citizenship, Attitude/Accountability, Respect/Responsibility, Effort/Enthusiasm, or Spirit, please initial one of the signature spaces on the form, beginning with the C sheet. You may create the criteria with your child. When all spaces have been signed, complete the form and return it to the school’s office. They will then receive the next sheet (A, then R, then E, then S).  Students are challenged to complete all five letters by the first P.A. Day in June. They will receive a special certificate at the end of the year for their completion of the program and earn 100 points for their house colour.  Thank you for supporting our caring students!
