New Rewards & Sanctions

As you might have heard, we have reviewed and simplified our Rewards and Sanctions for the Middle and Senior Schools. We continue to reward students for achievements, good work and good behaviour but sometimes we need to apply sanctions too.

The new Rewards and Sanctions matrix will soon be posted on the Parent Portal.  If you have difficulty logging into the portal, please contact the School Office.
