Student Awards Policy
When a student’s behaviour is positive, and thereby improves the climate of the College, the school should recognise this and encourage continued co-operation. This can be achieved through student awards.
These are significant awards and are open to all the students of St Columba’s Catholic College, recognising student participation, initiative and achievement both within and beyond the classroom.
The student award scheme is a four-tiered scheme that incorporates elements of in-class, College community and wider community activities. The scheme is progressive, with the degree of difficulty increasing with each level of award. It is student-initiated, with specific goals negotiated between the student and the Leader of Mission. It is based on Merit Certificates.
