Caring Striving Thinking Proud


School Assemblies are held every Friday from 10am to 10.45pm. These are very important occasions when we come together as a school to celebrate whole school, class, and individual successes and achievements.

Each class has turns at hosting the Assemblies, which are run by the pupils themselves. Parents and community members are encouraged to attend.


It is our policy to acknowledge success at school through awards, certificates, a sharing time at school assemblies, and the school newsletter.

Awards are made to acknowledge academic achievement in the classroom, sporting prowess, cooperative and social skills, and special occasions.

The big emphasis in Friday's assembly is to acknowledge our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) and our Coley Hearts - Thinking, Caring, Striving and Proud through the Manawa Cards.

Awards include Student of the Week, Manawa Cards, and Achievement/Sport Certificates.
