The Honour System (Boys Section)

17 May 2017

The Honour System (Boys Section)

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.

Implementation

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:
    1. Absence of any warning per term qualifies students for a gold ribbon
    2. 2 warnings or less qualifies students for a silver ribbon
    3. 4 warnings or less qualifies students for a bronze ribbon
    4. 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
  • Students will qualify for the Principal’s Award based on the following criteria:
    1. Achieving 2 gold ribbons in a given semester
    2. Achieving the semester Academic Award (Average of 85%)
  • Students will qualify for the College Award based on the following criteria:
    1. Achieving 4 gold ribbons (1 per term)
    2. Achieving 2 Academic Awards (1 per semester)

The chart above illustrates the progression to the College Award, a recognition of both behaviour and academic achievement.
