Mission and Aims
The Polio Points rewards system has become the DNA of our school.
Zhi Yin Student Leader
Our School’s mission makes a critical difference in the lives of others
At JIS the students are rewarded for the behaviours that are the explicit aims of the School. When they are successful they earn $1. This dollar goes to vaccinate a child in the developing world against polio. By living our values, we save lives.
The students work together to achieve awards in line with each of our aims. Each time that all six aims are met a polio vaccine is earned. The students earn tangible benefits for their efforts that reinforces the importance of their role as global citizens. The evident benefit of doing something worthwhile becomes an incentive that inspires further positive actions.
Excellent achievements at JIS mean that children in the developing world will now have their own chance to flourish.
The Polio Points project, like this video, is entirely student led and directed.
