Book Awards


In addition to Duffy kids receiving at least six books each 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 Duffy Champion awards celebrate the adults who champion reading and/or literacy in your wider school community. It could be a teacher, parent, grandparent or volunteer who receives this award. A book and card are awarded to Duffy Champions who have promoted reading in their school community.

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.
