Success at Tawhai

Success is celebrated in a variety of ways.

  • Values awards
    Presented in each class at the end of each day. These awards acknowledge those who have been respectful, responsible or have strived for excellence.
  • Principal awards
    Presented weekly at either whole school or syndicate assemblies. Teachers select one student each who has achieved success in any one of the key competencies throughout the week.
  • Student awards
    Presented weekly at either whole school or syndicate assemblies. Students select a class member who they feel has best demonstrated one or more of the school schools values.
  • Junior Neighbour Support certificates of achievement
    Sponsored by the Hutt City Council.

Assemblies also provide opportunities for students to share examples of their work, recognize academic achievements, acknowledge student leaders, success in sport or the arts.

Teachers can also send students to share work with the principal and often receive a special ‘Principals’ sticker for their efforts.

The school website is used to celebrate and promote examples of student success through the classroom blogs, news updates and Tawhai TV.
