A Merit System is in place to recognise and reward students’ outstanding performance in class and co-curricular activities, character and community service.
We aim to encourage all students to do their best at school and our merit award system is another step in shaping a positive future for our students at Day Waterman College.
The philosophy behind the merit system is to assist and affirm students in their striving to achieve greater self-discipline and personal excellence in many areas of the college life and in the wider community.
There are 5 levels of recognition
1. Bronze award – 25points 2. Silver award – 50points 3. Gold award – 75points 4. Diamond award – 100points 5. Platinum award – 125points
Others will include Principal’s Award (150points) with a Letter of Commendation and the Award Honour Board (600points).
Individual students are given a certificate when they have achieved stipulated targets.
There are two categories of DWC Merits: Academic Merit Award and House/House Colour Point Competition Merit Award with specific guidelines put in place in awarding these merits.
We believe this is a great incentive for students to work towards achieving their own personal best or to set achievable goals and work.
