Character Traits at HACH
At HACH, we celebrate our 5 Character Traits.
ZEST - Enthusiasm and verve for a specific task, subject or activity.
RESPONSIBILITY - Using prior knowledge to make the right decision.
CONFIDENCE - Faith in one's and the Academy's ability in relation to set goals.
KINDNESS - Proactive, thoughtful actions and words towards others.
GRIT - Resilience and hard work in relation to a specific task, subject or activity
We celebrate examples of student character through our 'Character Merit' reward system. Students collect merits by demonstrating the character traits in lessons and around the Academy. These merits are collated by home group, and the winning home group each half term is rewarded with a celebration breakfast.
We also celebrate Character Traits throughout the year with Pillar Days. These days provide an opportunity for year groups to explore a character trait through the prism of a year group wide project. The goal is take aspects of different subjects that flow into discussion and reflection about that given trait.
