Merit system

WHSPA Merit System

Quick Merits are awarded by teachers via our electronic record keeping system, Millennium.  Merits canl be awarded for:

·         Academic Achievement

·         Diligence and Commitment

·         Achievement in the Performing Arts

·         Achievement in Sport

·         Commitment to school values

Each time a Quick Merit is awarded to a student a congratulatory email will be automatically sent from Millennium to Parents/Carers acknowledging the student’s achievements.  Merits will accumulate and students will be rewarded accordingly.  The levels of the system are outlined below.

  • 1 x Quick Merit - Email to Parents/Carers
  • 10  x Quick Merits - BRONZE - Email to Parents - Certificate
  • 20 x Quick Merits - SILVER - Email to Parents - Certificate
  • 30 x Quick Merits - GOLD - Email to Parents - Certificate - Morning Tea - Reward Day Out (Jamberoo)
  • 50 x Quick Merits - PLATINUM - Email to Parents - Morning Tea - Reward Day Out (Jamberoo) - $20 Voucher - Principal Luncheon (held annually)

Each Term in Week 3 and Week 7 data is collated from Millennium and hard copies of certificates are printed.  Certificates are presented to students at Year Meeting Assemblies on Tuesday in Week 4 and Week 8.

The Quick Merit tally resets at the beginning of each school year and cuts off in mid-November each year to allow time to finalise preparations for the Jamberoo Rewards Day and Principal Luncheon.
