This unique awards program saw the good work of over 1,000 Tasmanian students recognised during 2016. A FREE program for all Tasmanian schools, here’s what some of this year’s participants had to say…
“Aussie of the Month acknowledges our young citizens for their community spirit. It motivates other students to achieve their own goals and contribute to the school community.” Windermere Primary School
“This program enables us to recognise students of all ages, who always try to do the right thing, are a good friend to others and are respectful to all. They ‘have a go’ and are not necessarily the smartest or the best athlete but consistently do their best.” Evandale Primary School
“At a formal assembly every month we recognise the positive role models in our school. Students just love the badges.” Sprent Primary School
The Aussie of the Month Program focusses on recognising students who exemplify the values we all share as Australians including a sense of fair play, generosity of spirit, commitment to the community, participation and a genuine concern for the environment. The Program also allows teachers to engage in classroom discussions about the values and what it means to be a good Australian citizen – be that in the school ground, the local community or the whole nation.
During a school assembly your chosen Aussie of the Month student is presented with a certificate and a badge to wear with pride on their uniform. We also send you a poster to showcase the names of your recognised students throughout the year.
Registrations can be submitted at any time for the 2017 program, however registering before the start of the next school year ensures you have a complete years supply of materials. To register simply give us a call or complete and return this registration form.
