School Award Badges

Every School aims at motivating students to do well and get good grades. The common goal for teachers and parents is not only getting their children to get excellent grades but also learning in order to use this knowledge in real life. Achieving this can be turned into a ‘fun mode’ by rewarding students with badges!

Badges are a very innovative way to motivate, cheer and bring the element of competitive spirit into the learning system. Children love to show off the badges they have earned through the process. Children with award badges motivate fellow children to work towards it and earn more badges.

Badges encourage students to try harder and think outside the box. Badges are an attractive reward and who wouldn’t love to be rewarded and given something to wear that shows off their achievement?

Where can I begin?

Teachers can list the targets they want the students to meet and reward them with certain badges!

  1. Specific Targets
    List specific activities you want your students to complete.Once the student is successful in this he will be rewarded with a beautiful badge!
  2. Random Targets
    You can create a few badges for doing something completely random but still in line with the class curriculum. It might be an assignment or a project work. It can be something that helps students to put additional effort to learn the subject.
  3. Exceptional targets
    Apart from the day to day tasks, some targets are hard to accomplish. When a student achieves something extraordinary, another special badge can be awarded. This is an innovative way to push students to work harder and to do things in unconventional ways.

Approximately one is 30 £1 coins in circulation is counterfeit. For the first time in over 30 years, these coins are being replaced to avoid counterfeiters.

Some of its features are as follows:

  • New design shows the English rose, the Welsh leek, the Scottish thistle and the Northern Irish shamrock emerging from one stem within a royal coronet – created by David Pearce, winner of public design competition at the age of 15.
  • It is 12-sided! its unique shape makes it instantly identifiable, even by touch.
  • It is made of two metals. The outer ring is gold coloured (nickel-brass) and the inner ring is silver coloured (nickel-plated alloy).
  • Latent image – it has a hologram that changes from a ‘£’ symbol to the number ‘1’ when the coin is seen from different angles.

The existing £1 coins will stop being legal tender on October 15, 2017. Is your business ready for this change?

Trolley tokens have been a huge success in the recent years. Unlike other promotional items trolley coins have a fantastic range of daily uses as you can use trolley key chains at supermarkets, gym lockers and for luggage trolleys at the airport. You can personalise both sides of the trolley coins, with your logo, include your telephone number and website on the back of the trolley coins.

Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Lidl and Waitrose are also embracing this change. Currently, their trolleys accept both old and new coins.
