At Taupo Primary School we run an ‘Awards Programme’ to promote leadership and encourage success in all aspects of school life.
The Awards Programme is a two tier award system based on an accumulation of points.
The badges are Merit (Silver) and Excellence (Gold) and are obtainable in 4 different codes: Sport, Service/Respect, Cultural/Arts and Academic.
These can be completed by the Year 6 students in Tuakana Team at Taupo Primary School.
A Sports Badge is awarded to students who represent themselves and/or our school in any sporting code showing fair play, team spirit and commitment.
To obtain a Cultural/Arts Badge a student must as an individual or as a member of a group show good attendance, display a positive attitude and commitment to lessons.
A Service/Respect Badge is awarded to an individual for giving dedicated and honest commitment to duties or services within the school.
To be awarded an Academic Badge, a student needs to achieve at a high level academically and provide evidence (such as scores) of such achievements.
