Student Achievement

Our school’s merit levels promote and recognise student achievement and success in a broad range of experiences. We recognise the importance of rewarding students who actively participate in all aspects of school, who try their best and value learning. These values demonstrate student commitment to SAFE, RESPECTFUL and SUCCESSFUL LEARNING and strengthen our school culture of belonging and success.

Digital Merits

At Gymea, students are awarded digital merits by staff across the school in all learning areas and activities. The accumulation of these certificates and awards are communicated to students and families and each processed to ensure the progression of awards continually occurs.


Merit Certificates

Students receive Safe, Respectful and Successful Learner Merit Certificates from their teachers. Students and families will receive communication throughout the term on the award of their merit certificates.


Year Adviser Award

Students qualify for a Year Adviser Award when they receive five merit certificates. These awards are presented to students by their Year Adviser. These awards are processed on behalf of the student and awarded during whole year assemblies.


Principal’s Award
