If you are going to Dauphin Regional Comprehensive Secondary School you have a chance to win a car!
The school is giving students a major incentive to show up for class… Kids who have a very good attendance are entered in a draw to win a vehicle at the end of the year.
The school begun giving monthly prizes for excellent attendance and four years ago a secretary donated her BMW convertible for a prize!

So they are doing it once again! The requirement of the students to have at least one week of perfect attendance. From there they will go into a draw… For every perfect week of attendance, they get their name in the draw again! Then at the end of the year, if they have attended school at least a 90 per cent their name stays in the draw!
This has been working! The school has jumped 20 percent in attendance!
Is this something that more schools should consider?
