Chaddy The Owl visits Oldham schools

Pupils across Oldham are being rewarded for their school attendance this week with designer 100% badges from Crayola and Ben Sherman.

In support of The 100% Challenge Oldham Athletic mascot Chaddy The Owl visited Limehurst Primary and Limeside Primary this week to distribute badges to pupils who’d completed The 100% Challenge in the first half term.

The badges form part of The MOTIV 100% Challenge supported by Oldham Council. The 100% Challenge rewards pupils who get to school on time, every day, all term. They receive exclusively designed badges at each half-term if they do so, and if they complete a full Spring term every pupil receives a reward tailored to their year group and their school.  The Challenge operates on two levels: 100% attendance and 100% effort for attendance. This dual approach celebrates the achievements of everyone, from hard-working, responsible pupils to those who make a significant effort to improve their attendance record.

Pupils will be rewarded at the end of term with Crayola colouring packs, and MOTIV Reward Cards including Hollywood Bowl Family tickets, free entrance to Laser-ace, Asylum Paintballing and OAFC match day tickets. Additional family rewards can also be won and include family meals at YO! Sushi, Nando’s and an exclusive family film screening at the ODEON cinema.

“Attendance habits are formed at an early age and by celebrating achievements with small but meaningful rewards it encourages peers to aspire. Families are a really important part of the equation and by offering rewards that appeal to parents or guardians we can ensure the whole school gets behind The 100% Challenge”

Mrs H. Arya, Headteacher, Limeside Primary

“Oldham Athletic Football Club are delighted to be supporting The MOTIV 100% Challenge in Oldham for the third year in row. Good attendance is as important at the football club as it is in school – to be a professional footballer you have to attend training and matches every week on time and this enables them to be the best they can be.”

James Mwale, Inclusion Co-ordinator, Oldham Athletic Football Club.
