Recognition of Achievement

Academic Achievement:
 
Academic Achievement Award Ceremonies are conducted each Semester.
 
 
  • Students who achieve an A in either English or Maths along with an A or B in all other Academic Subjects   are presented with an Academic Achievement Medallion and Certificate at a dedicated ceremony in front of parents and peers.
 
  • Students who achieve an Excellent grade for Effort in Years 3 to 6, or a Very Good grade in Years 1 and 2 in all subject areas are presented with an Outstanding Effort Medallion and Certificate at a dedicated ceremony in front of parents and peers.
 
 
 
Recognition of Acceptable Behaviour:
 
At Yarrilee we value and reward students for demonstrating acceptable and appropriate behaviour. Through our Level system, every child earns the right to commence their schooling at Yarrilee or commence their new minischool on Behaviour Level 3. A student on Level 3 demonstrates the behaviour that we expect of all of our students consistent with the YOU CAN DO IT keys.
 
LEVEL 3 Students (All MiniSchools):-
  • Demonstrate the YCDI criteria MOST OF THE TIME - a “C” standard.
  • Receive a Maroon YCDI band
  • Some students choose to remain on this level.
 
EARLY LEARNERS
  • As Prep is the first year of school there is a 2 tier level system – Satisfactory Level 3 and Not Satisfactory
  • Prep students will have focussed teaching in each of the 5 YCDI Keys.
  • The rainbow chart is used as a daily YCDI reflection tool.
  • As the criteria is fulfilled for each key, students will be presented with a certificate.
 
LEVEL 2 Students (Junior, Middle & Senior School):-
  • Demonstrate a “higher” than “C” standard CONSISTENTLY over a term.
  • Receive a Blue YCDI band to add to their maroon YCDI band.
  • Receive a certificate at a special assembly. Parents are invited to attend.
  • Some students choose to remain on this level.
 
LEVEL 1 Students (Junior, Middle & Senior School):-

PROCESS
 
At the end of each term, Class Teachers review student’s behaviour after consideration of YCDI reflective journal, personal observation and any relevant behaviour records. (SS students may have the option to self-nominate)
  • The list of nominees is then presented to the minischool staff for endorsement.
  • When endorsed, the minischools present their nominees to all staff.
  • If not endorsed, the class teacher feeds back to the student and works with them on future goal setting.
