Middle School IB Learner Profile and Attitude Awards

In Week 8 we celebrate the end of the year with our IB Learner Profile and Attitude Awards Assembly. This event is different from our Middle School Speech Night and very different from the Academic Excellence awards presented at Senior School Speech Night.

Middle School Awards recognise students in each year group and each subject area for their endeavour, persistence, positive attitude, collaboration with others and the growth in their own self-management and sense of accountability. We believe these attributes are the vital, transferable skills that lay the foundation for personal success in Senior School. These are the attitudes we endeavour so hard to cultivate in Middle School and lie at the heart of what we do.

At the Awards Assembly we also recognise a boy in each year for his citizenship qualities with the Mo Maslin Citizenship Award. Mo Maslin was a former Middle School student who typified the welcoming, collaborating, encouraging, compassionate and caring approach to life we would hope a Scotch College education develops. Families of boys receiving awards at this Awards Assembly will be notified via email early next week.
