This week’s meeting focussed on discussion of our existing rewards policy and procedures. The students were asked to consider these questions from the agenda:
What rewards are in place now at St Mary's?
- What are the views of the students about the current rewards?
- What would students like to be rewarded for?
- How would students like to be rewarded?
