Awards for 2020
After Staff and P&C Consultation we are looking to change up the awards process for our school.
This table compares 2020 awards structure with the previous model.
- Year 6 Awards will be presented at Graduation evening.
- Due to Covid restrictions, other year level awards will be presented at school in the last week of term. Photos will be taken and emailed home to parents. Of course, we hope 2021 looks very different and we can hold celebration of learning ceremonies.

These changes have been endorsed by P&C however we are still considering further development in this area for 2021 including
- Extending awards to include Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards at the end of Semester 1 as well as end of year.
- Extending the spirit of learning to acknowledge more students at the end of term with some type of award or reward.
These will be further discussed with staff and at P&C meetings in early 2021.
