Rewarding Positive Behaviour

Teachers reward and recognise students who follow the rules in a variety of ways through encouragement and regular feedback to students.

The Principal may also award students with a merit award at their discretion for exemplary behaviour or participation in school activities.


Every Monday morning the school assembles to present and congratulate students who have earned wristbands and badges.

Fortnightly, our Wednesday School assembly recognises Excellence in Learning with awards to 3 students from each class. Awards are presented for Maths, English and Wellbeing.

Medals and trophies are presented to students at the End of Term Celebration of Learning Assembly.
