Celebrating Progress

Our school culture recognises and celebrates effort and success in learning. Ribbons and certificates are awarded each fortnight at school assemblies and houses also celebrate learning progress. Ribbons and certificates are also awarded at these hui and current learning is shared. The ribbons are much sought after and worn with great pride. Ribbons are awarded for: Academic, Reading, Sport, Fitness, Basic Facts, Technology, Spelling, Visual Art, Music, Culture, Public Speaking, Kapa Haka, Te Ao Maori, Attendance, Commitment, Practical, Service, Citizenship, CCC and Leadership.
A CCC ribbon is awarded for consistent demonstration of the 3 C’s in the classroom or the playground. At every school assembly a student from each house receives a 3C badge. Teachers discuss the students in their house and then award it to the deserving student. The badge was new in 2017 and all of the students who have received it wear them with pride. At the end of each term the students from every class vote for the student they feel is deserving of a blue 3C shirt. One student from each house is then awarded this highly respected honour.
