Merit Points

Merit Points

There are a variety of ways children can earn merit points including: when they have put in extra effort and care with their work; when they are demonstrating our school values; and showing good manners.


Every merit point is earned for their House and the House Cup is presented at the end of the year for the House with the most merit points!  Children can also receive individual recognition for the amount of Merit Points they are awarded as follows:  Bronze Award (50 points), Silver Award (100 points) and Gold Award (150 points).
