Assemblies are held at 8.40
Merit certificates are issued to students, usually two or three per class, at each assembly. The children receiving the certificate are being recognised for excellence, achievement and citizenship. Additional certificates may be given for music, physical education, science, Japanese or visual arts achievements.
Gumnuts and Kooda
As part of the Virtues program Gold, Silver or Jewel gumnuts may be presented to students who have achieved 10, 25 or 50 virtues vouchers. Kooda, the school’s Koala mascot, is usually present to give the children a hug or ‘high 5’ in recognition of their fine achievement.
‘Aussie of the Month’
It is usual practice to announce a Junior and a Senior ‘Aussie of the Month’. These awards recognise students for their good citizenship, personal behaviour and achievement. They are supported by National Australia Day Council. Award recipients receive a certificate, badge, bookmark and stationery gift set.
