Positive Rewards

The school reward system reinforces positive behaviour and encourages students to try their hardest at all aspects of their schooling.


The reward system is based around the tree stamp. Children aim to accumulate 20 tree stamps. Tree stamps are given to acknowledge appropriate behaviour or to recognise effort or participation in activities. They are also given for reasons such as returning notes or money, bringing tissues or equipment or returning library books on time.

Tree Stamp


The next reward is the white certificate. These are given out at assemblies in recognition for achievement or in class for earning 20 tree stamps.

White Certificate


If students accumulate five white certificates they earn a coloured certificate.

  • Stage 1: Lilac Certificate
  • Stage 2: Ruby Certificate
  • Stage 3: Emerald Certificate


Students who receive a coloured certificate are rewarded at the end of each term with a pizza party with the principal.


The pinnacle of the reward system is the gold certificate. This is achieved by accumulating any five lilac, ruby or emerald certificates. It is anticipated that students will earn a gold certificate every two to three years of their schooling at Belmore North. Students who earn one of these certificates are rewarded with a gold medallion at the end of year presentation day and are invited to a movie day excursion.
