Rotary Citizenship Award
On 14 December 2021, President Warrick presented the inaugural Rotary Citizenship Awards at Majura Primary School's Year Six Graduation Assembly (held in two sessions because of covid number restrictions).
The award is presented to a Year 6 student that has exemplified the School's values of responsibility, excellence and respect during the year. Teachers considered there were two students, Frida and Tim, who had equally best demonstrated the values. Each received the award, comprising a certificate and a $50 gift card for Dymocks bookstore. In addition, our Club will work with the school to select and fund a perpetual trophy or shield to be included in the School's trophy display cabinet. This will have the annual winner(s) name(s) engraved each year.
In addition to the award, the Club has funded the costs of celebrations of the school's values, such as morning tea with the Principal, Liz Bobos, for students who had been observed following the values. Unlike the citizenship award, these events are open to all students at the school who demonstrate the values.
We look forward to continuing and building on this citizenship and values partnership with the school.
