The Honour System is part of the College’s Discipline Policy to encourage and reward higher standards of behaviour and academic achievement and to discourage anti-social and disruptive behaviour.
There are four types of awards that make up the Honour System:
1. Behaviour Award
2. Academic Award
3. Principal Award
4. College Award
- The termly behaviour award will be based on the Student Behaviour Tracker to document all warnings/forms given per term.
- Students will qualify for the Termly Behaviour Award based on the following criteria:
- Absence of any warning per term qualifies students for a gold ribbon
- 2 warnings or less qualifies students for a silver ribbon
- 4 warnings or less qualifies students for a bronze ribbon
- By the end of Term 4, the student who accumulates over the year:
- 2 or more gold ribbons will qualify for a gold medal
- 2 or more silver ribbons qualifies for a silver medal
