Level 1 Gold and Level 2 Silver

When a student has received 10 certificates across any of the areas of Behaviour, Service or Academic/Effort they can be given to the Year Coordinator who then issues a Silver Certificate. If the student were on Level 3 he would then move to Level 2 Silver. Apart from the Silver certificate, a student on Level 2 may obtain permission to go home from sport on Fridays. A student can continue to exchange 10 certificates for Silver Certificates. Progression to Level 1 Gold is only achieved when a student receives a minimum of two Silver Certificates and approval from class teachers using the Code of Learning Form that indicate a nominated contribution from that student across all areas of Behaviour, Academic/Effort and Service to the College. At Level 1 Gold a student receives a gold card and has available various opportunities including:

  • First on the bus after seniors
  • With parental permission, lunch at East Gosford on Wednesdays
  • Choose first with sport selection after seniors
