Swan Reach Primary School prides itself on the high participation and completion rate of the Junior Rotary Award. The program is offered to our Grade 6 students and presentations are made to the children who complete a range of activities during their final year of primary school. The activities are designed to give children a wide range of experiences in their local community, including the opportunity to directly participate in some form of community service. The award is non- competitive and designed for children of all abilities.

The aims of the award are

  • To raise the level of knowledge in children of the range of values in their community
  • To give a greater understanding of what makes our communities work
  • To provide an opportunity for children to experience the satisfaction of community service
  • To give children an opportunity to see and understand their own potential value to the community, regardless of academic, physical or other abilities.

The award promotes

  • Leadership
  • Confidence
  • Self worth
  • Knowledge
  • Skills for life
  • Positive values
  • Social values

Participation in the program spans terms 2 and 3 with a formal awards evening and dinner in term 4. We really look forward to supporting our students once again this year, in this fabulous and rewarding program.
