Both the Preparatory and the Senior Schools of Veritas College have a wide variety of awards available to pupils. These awards serve as incentives to pupils to excel in the academic, sporting and cultural spheres of College activities. They also serve as a form of reward for the successful completion of a particular area of enterprise. Obviously, the incentive and reward aspects intrinsic to these awards are only effective if a pupil, firstly, knows what awards are available and secondly, if the pupil is clear in his/her own mind, what criteria have to be met in order to earn a particular award.
• A panel of teachers will decide this process of awarding pupils with the necessary award.
• Awards will only be considered if copies of certificates and/or other proof of achievement are handed in.
