KIWANIS Awards


KIWANIS AwardsAs another means of further celebrating and acknowledging the wonderful achievements of our students, our school has joined the Kiwanis Club of Waverley's 'Terrific Kids' program.  The program awards 4 students per term (1 from each Area – Prep’s, Year 1/2's, Year 3/4’s and Year 5/6’s) with the Terrific Kids Award. The Kiwanis Club very generously provides the recipients with a trophy and also a $20 book voucher. 

 

What is Terrific Kids?

 

Being young leaders through practicing good character and good citizenship.

 

Terrific Kids is a student recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem, and perseverance. Students work with their classroom teacher and establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance, or schoolwork. Students then work toward achieving the goal during a specific time period. The teachers and principal determine the best schedule for recognition.

 

TERRIFIC is an acronym meaning: Thoughtful Enthusiastic Respectful Responsible Inclusive Friendly Inquisitive Capable
