Academic Awards and the Learning Code

To underline the importance of academic achievement across all year levels, two special
awards are presented to students based on their academic performance in each of the
four assessment periods in the school year. Assemblies are held to present the awards.

Academic Excellence

The award of Academic Excellence is presented to (full-time) students who:

  1.  achieve the grade ‘A’ in all their subjects;
  2. achieve at least the level of ‘satisfactory’ in all elements of the Learning Code – organisation, cooperation and engagement – in every subject.

Academic Achievement

The award of Academic Achievement is presented to (full-time) students who:

  1. achieve the grade ‘A’ in the majority of their subjects and the grade ‘B’ in all other subjects;
  2. achieve at least the level ‘satisfactory’ in all elements of the Learning Code – organisation, cooperation and engagement – in every subject.

Based on the achievement of these awards over the course of the year, there is an
additional set of academic awards presented at both the Year 12 Graduation Assembly
and the Years 8-11 Presentation Assembly
