Buderim Badges and Awards

Buderim Mountain State School has a proud history of acknowledging student success and participation in both class and extra curricula activities. We have two categories; Cumulative Awards and Buderim Badges.
Cumulative Awards continue throughout the year and are presented on each year level’s parade. Class Achievement awards are presented each week while Principal Awards, Banners and Medallions are presented at special parades in week 5 and 10 each term.
As well as our Cumulative Awards at Buderim we also present 5 different badges (sew on) to students for the following categories; Academic, Effort, Service, Sport and Cultural. These awards are distributed via the teacher in charge of each activity.
 
1.  Achievement Awards are presented each week on parade to students in each class for a range of significant achievements:  respectful manners, respectful consideration, high academic achievement, general achievement, high work effort.  Teachers choose these awards based on classroom achievement.
2.  Three Achievement Awards = 1 Principal’s Award Students are asked to submit their 3 achievement awards (they don’t have to all be received in 1 year) in to the box in the office foyer and they will then be presented with a Principal’s Award on parade.  Students will continue receiving achievement awards throughout their years.
3. Three Principal’s Awards = 1 Banner Students are asked to submit their 3 principal’s awards in to the box in the office foyer and they will then be presented with a Buderim Banner on parade. 
4. Two Banners = 1 Medallion Students are asked to submit their 2 banners in to the box in the office foyer and they will then be presented with a medallion on parade. 
Principal Awards, Banners and Medallions will be presented on parade in week 5 and 10 of each term.
At times there may also be awards presented on parades which are from extra-curricular activities and competitions.
