"We Love catching our Students being good"

Student of the Week Award

John Willcock College celebrates and rewards correct behaviour through many initiatives. One of these is the Student of the Week award. Every Monday, Form Teachers are asked to nominate ALL students in their form class who met the following criteria for the previous week:

  • Care, Courtesy and Consideration, shown to peers and staff
  • 100% attendance for that week
  • Correct uniform worn every day for that week
  • Prepared for the day with Laptop or I-pad, key, charger, bag and diary
  • Good attitude

Every week, one student is ‘randomly’ chosen as WINNER for that week and receives a gift voucher to the value of $10 donated by the P&C. We will make sure that every form class has a winner and that equal numbers of males/females, Year 7s, Year 8s and Year 9s, and representatives from all cultures get a fair portion of wins.

At the end of term, students who have been nominated 80% or more of the time will be rewarded. The type of reward will vary each term. 80% has been chosen as the target because this sets a standard that is attainable and acceptable and rewards those students who are consistently doing the ‘right thing’. It is our privilege to spend some time and money on the many great students we have at JWC.
