The school aims to give high recognition to students who display commitment. We value extensive participation in curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The Winmalee Medal recognises a student's holistic achievements in a balanced and progressive framework.
To receive an award a student needs to earn eight credits in at least four of the following categories with a maximum of three credits per category. Some activities have a value of two credits. This encourages students to become involved in a variety of areas of school life in any academic year.
The categories include:
1. Academic Excellence / Merit Program
3. Community Service
4. Creative and Performing Arts
5. Sports Representation
There are five steps in the award:
The first step is the Certificate of Achievement 1
The second step is the Certificate of Achievement 2
The third step is the Certificate of Achievement 3
The fourth step is the Winmalee Medal
The final step is the Principal's Medal
Please note the following:
Where the contribution is outstanding, significant or over an extended period of time the student may ask the Winmalee Medal coordinating teacher for it to be acknowledged as two credits.
Each step must be achieved in an academic year.
There is a limit of two steps that can be achieved in each year.
The Principal's Medal can be achieved in two ways:
Either by a special project designed and implemented by a student, or by completing two steps per year for four years.
Students should maintain their own record signed and dated by the teacher in charge. Winmalee Medal booklets are available from the Winmalee Medal coordinating teacher.
When the credit record is completed, students present it to the Winmalee Medal coordinating teacher. Credits within each category require a minimum of 85% attendance and participation in all aspects of preparation and performance. Participation should be enthusiastic and co-operative. The coordinating teacher or principal will consider any applications by students for activities not included in this document.
More detailed information regarding eligibility for credits can be found in the Winmalee Medal Booklet.
