REAL Celebration of Progress and Achievement

On Tuesday 11th July,  our Year 7 class of 2017 were given a ‘REAL’ celebration to recognise their progress and achievements in REAL this year. We had our annual REAL Graduation ceremony where students received Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum awards, based on our ‘Mastery Model’ for assessment. The awards were for their demonstration of our 6 character traits; Respect, Courage, Compassion, Integrity, Pride and Quality and for their progress and achievements in digital literacy.
