We have a variety of rewards and incentives in place at PVS to reward fantastic behaviour and outstanding work. Every friday we have our ‘Inspirational’ assembly where we issue weekly certificates and watch a video clip of someone who we think is inspirational. We remember these people by having their name on our inspirational display board which is in the centre for school for all to see. You can see these people here too.

British School Boy Musharaf has had a stammer from a very young age. With the help of his teachers, he is eventually able to over come it in time for an English speaking exam.
Firefighter Stephen Gerard Siller, on September 11, 2001,Stephen had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was on his way to play golf with his brothers when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. When he heard the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later, and then returned to Squad 1 to get his gear.
Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it was already closed. So he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic and ran from the Tunnel to the Towers where he gave up his life while saving others.
Stephen had everything to live for, a great wife, five wonderful children, devoted extended family and friends. Stephen’s parents were lay Franciscans and he grew up under the guiding philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi, “While we have time, let us do good.” Stephen’s life and heroic death serve as reminder to us all to live life to the fullest and to spend our time here on earth doing good – this is his legacy.
Connor “The Crusher” Michalek (2005 – April 25, 2014) was a WWE fan and, later, a WWE Hall of Famer who received considerable media attention after a social media campaign for him to meet his hero and favorite wrestler, Daniel Bryan.
He later met Bryan and other WWE stars a number of times. Michalek, who had battled cancer of the spine and brain since he was three years old, died on April 25 2014, at the age of eight.
WWE executives Triple H and Stephanie McMahon subsequently named the Connor’s Cure charity in his honor and he posthumously received the inaugural Warrior Award at the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.
When Arthur Boorman was injured in the Gulf War, a botched surgery left him immobile and depressed. Having been told he would never walk unassisted again, the 47-year-old ballooned to 297lbs and gave up hope of ever being happy again.
But thanks to a revolutionary form of yoga, Mr Boorman managed to lose a staggering 140lbs in just ten months and now can not only walk without his canes and leg braces, he can run.
