Awards at school

The FISH philosophy

There are four main concepts highlighted in FISH! They are ingredients that make our school an engaging environment for students, parents and teachers alike. These concepts are:

Play is not a specific game or activity.
It is a state of mind that brings new energy
to the tasks at hand and sparks
creative solutions.

If you find your energy lapsing,
find someone
who needs a helping hand,
a word of support,
or a good ear,
and make their day.

Your attitude is your reaction
to what life hands you,
and only you
can choose that reaction.

To “be there” is to be fully engaged
in the moment
inviting opportunities,
and sharing
the experience together.

The Gary Cooper Award

At the whole school assembly each December, 2 certificates are presented by Mrs Amanda Cooper. 

The school was fortunate enough to have her son Brodi, and her daughter Tahnee attend our school from 1997 until 2004. During this time, Mr Gary Cooper, their Dad passed away.

Mr Cooper was a great supporter and volunteer at our school for all these years. 

He used to help at sport carnivals, he would go on and school camps excursions, cook sausage sizzles and enjoyed working with all the students across the school.

The school now presents the Gary Cooper encouragement award each year to 2 children who may not be the best at sport, but show excellent sportsmanship, attitude and behaviour. 

Their names are engraved on the perpetual trophy and displayed in the office for all to see.

The recipient of the award has been recognized for having a positive attitude, displaying great sportsmanship, and participating in school events with pride and enthusiasm.
