Achievements and Awards


Heights College recognises the achievements of students throughout the year both in class and on full College assemblies.

The main awards presented are:
• Class Awards – Presented to students by classroom or pastoral care teachers for a particular achievement in their class.
• Gold Awards – These awards are presented to students by classroom or pastoral care teachers during the weekly assembly. They recognise a specific area of personal, spiritual or academic achievement by a student. Parents are invited to attend these presentations.
• Character, Leadership, Influence and Breakthrough Awards 
– These awards are presented as part of the Behaviour Management Program through the Primary and Secondary school as students demonstrate these capabilities over time.

Sports Awards
Towards the end of each year we recognise and honour those students who have excelled in interschool and representative sport in the College at a formal sports awards ceremony. This includes students who have gained recognition in any sport and competed at local and/or state levels.

Arts are celebrated all through the year with highlighted Assembly performances, external competitions and participation in community events. In Term 4, we also hold an Arts Award evening to recognise achievement in Music, Visual Arts and Drama.
