The Swap-Shop

We want to reward students who demonstrate characteristics of the Cheam MANTRA in as many ways as possible. 

For Years 7 - 10 students can collect stamps at the swap shop during break on Tuesday's or Thursday's. One stamp is awarded for every 5 IRIS rewards they have received. These stamps can then be 'swapped' for a wide variety of items for the swap shop after school also on a Tuesday or Thursday. Items available include sweets, chocolates, popcorn, table tennis bats, refillable water bottles, free breakfast or lunch, £10/£20 and £50 vouchers, headphones, EarPods, Kindles and many more. Students can also choose to spend their rewards on planting tress or even donating to a charity of their choice.
