Book Awards

CAUGHT BEING GOOD

In addition to Duffy kids receiving at least five books each a year, they have the opportunity to earn more books through a weekly Caught Being Good award. This award not only reinforces positive behaviour, it places value on books as a reward and gives teachers a chance to play an even more positive role in their students' lives.

The Scholastic Caught Being a Good Mum, Scholastic Caught Being a Good Dad and the Caught Being a Good Grandparent awards celebrate Mother's and Father's Day and grandparents. A book and certificate are awarded to parents and caregivers who have been reading to their kids at home or at school.

Teachers and Duffy coordinators click here to view the Best Practices Manual for more information and ideas about Caught Being Good Awards.

THE MAINFREIGHT AWARD

The Mainfreight Award for Excellence in Attitude is presented at a special end of year assembly to one student who has displayed all-around excellence. This award is generously sponsored by Mainfreight and many Duffy schools make it their main end-of-year award.

SCHOOL LEADER ASSEMBLY

The School Leader Assembly is where local secondary school students visit their nearest Duffy school and talk with Duffy kids about goal-setting and their own achievements since starting secondary school. Duffy kids love being able to see that they don't have to wait until adulthood to start making their mark on the world.
