'Get More Giving'

The Gordon’s Honours Programme seeks to promote and capture good character, rewarding hard work, good behaviour and the voluntary involvement of students in going the extra mile and giving more than is expected through four distinct aspects: House, subjects, extra-curricular and whole-school.

Gordon’s already recognises and rewards outstanding achievement in high profile areas: excellence on the sports field, in music and in drama to name but a few. Our Honours Programme is an opportunity to recognise that in life, effort is as important, if not more important, than talent. It acknowledges that those who truly inspire are those who succeed because they have enthusiastically persevered, have kept their promises and have worn their success lightly.

The programme will help students develop personal responsibility and be able to exercise it in worthwhile ways, to be rounded individuals, and fine examples of the character attributes we seek to nurture in all of our students regardless of talent.

The core purpose of the programme is:

  • To recognise and reward all those who exemplify the school’s character attributes of courtesy, integrity, diligence, enthusiasm and resilience;
  • To recognise and reward all those who volunteer to give back to others and the community at large.
