At Salesian College, Bosco Awards are given to students who achieve excellence in many different ways. We understand that while not all boys are as academically inclined as others, all of them carry within them the God given ability to shine in their own particular way. These awards are our attempt to allow those talents to shine, and to ensure that boys are affirmed for the positive contribution they make to the community.
Points for the awards are allocated both to individual students and their House. Academic points are awarded to boys over the year on the basis of each boy’s subject marks each term as well as any specific awards achieved. Cultural points are given for boys’ participation in activities such as debating, public speaking, bands, assisting with liturgical singing etc. Community points are awarded to boys who engage in the activities that enliven the spirit of St John Bosco at the College. This may include fund raising, attending special College days and participating fully in the contribution to school spirit. Sport is an important aspect of the development of young men, and we endeavour to recognise that sport encourages admirable qualities such as determination and mateship.
Bronze Bosco is a significant achievement, with the Silver being a considerable step up again. Winners of the Gold Bosco have shown dedication to the school in many ways, and they really are examples of the finest young men that Salesian has to offer.
