On Tuesday 25 July, SMGS held their mid-year Principal’s Merit Assembly. The assembly recognises students who had achieved Academic Honours (Provisional) and Academic Endeavour (Provisional) across Stages 4, 5 and 6 in Term 2. During the assembly students who represented SMGS at this year’s da Vinci Decathlon were also recognised for their achievements in the competition (for a recap on how the team did, please click here (this is a Facebook post): SMGS 7/8 da Vinci Decathlon results)
To receive an Academic Endeavour Award, a student must maintain a Commendable average across the five domains on which teachers report each term. These domains are:
- All RELTs items submitted on time and attempted to a high standard.
- Arrives to class on time and is organised with materials required for effective learning.
- Maintains a high standard of classwork, including written work.
- Displays appropriate classroom behaviour.
- Maintains engagement in classroom learning.
Students are given one of the following ratings for each of the domains:
|Excellent||Students at this level meet the criteria almost always or on virtually all occasions.|
|Commendable||Students at this level meet the criteria on the majority of occasions or on most occasions.|
|Satisfactory||Students at this level meet the criteria most of the time.|
|Inconsistent||Students at this level are sporadic with their application, which is detrimental to consistent learning.|
|Unsatisfactory||Students at this level are performing well under expectations.|

House Standings – Academic Honours (Provisional) and Academic Endeavour (Provisional)
These results are kept and collated across the next two terms to be used in both our House Shield and Speech Day awards. The results for all students in each tutor group count towards a GPA in academic and endeavour results. It is an extremely prestigious honour for the tutor group to be awarded the overall highest academic and endeavour certificates.
It is pleasing to see the improved effort all students have put into their academic work. Congratulations to all students for their personal best efforts.
