At Chandler Park Primary we believe in celebrating excellence, in fact, our school motto is ‘Pride In Excellence’.
Each semester we host a Lunches of Excellence Program for students and their families, each child is selected on the basis that above and beyond their peers they have demonstrated some aspect of excellence throughout that term. We value excellence not just in academic terms but also in social behaviour, teamwork, and community spirit. We have over a 90% attendance rate from family members at these luncheons, and with over 42 different nationalities and a large number of working parents that is no small feat! We first instigated this program in 2004 and it is now modelled in several other schools. Every staff member attends at least one Lunches of Excellence each year and participates in the presentation of badges & certificates to the children.
Apart from a delicious lunch the students are provided with a certificate, badge, pencil and a photo taken with their family, all in a Lunches of Excellence bag. Seeing the look of pride on the faces of the student and their families simply reiterates our school motto as we truly take “Pride In Excellence’ to another level.
