Merits and Dojos


Merits and Dojos


Celebrating students achievements, whether it is for academic performance or for student life and community spirit, reinforces positive behaviour and work ethic. Here at JCS we reward our team and community spirit through the House system. Secondary students are also awarded merit points for academic work if it is an outstanding piece, or if the student has shown real improvement or effort. This is a way of recognising individual as well as group achievement.

In primary classes students receive Dojo points for both school work and community spirit. The Dojo is an interactive program that is also available to parents for online viewing. Parents are updated as to their child’s progress on a daily basis through the Class Dojo app where they can see how many Dojos their child has been awarded and view occasional photographs of their child’s activities throughout the school day. Dojos are individual awards and they are converted to House points and put towards the team totals as well.
