Manland Special Award


Matthew is always polite and hardworking.  He was delighted to receive this award. Matthew has worked really hard to overcome some of his own personal challenges which enabled him to have a fantastic time at PGL and successfully climb Jacob’s Ladder.  Well done Matthew, you should be very proud of yourself!


Zachary has been awarded the Manland Special Award for his efforts in and around school.  He has been trying really hard with his learning in different lessons and has been demonstrating perseverance.  His teachers and the staff around the school are thrilled to see Zachary’s hard work and hope he is proud of this award.


Josh exemplifies all of our Manland values all the time in a quiet and modest way.  He works hard in every single lesson, trying his best and even when he has done well, never feels that the learning has come to an end.  He is a very good friend and has recently been a particularly supportive learning partner.  Josh has a really strong understanding of people’s feelings and shows this in the sensitive way he behaves when other children are having a tricky time. He is an excellent role model and should be very proud of the mature and kind way in which he conducts himself, of his positive attitude towards learning and his strong sense of responsibility.


Luke has set an excellent example for the rest of the school to follow. He has worked exceptionally hard to go the extra mile and developed and improved his writing immeasurably. His work stands as a powerful example of the importance of editing and refining.  Well done Luke!


Daniel has worked hard as a member of the School Council, attending meetings and helping organise various events at school. He comes to find out when the meetings are and will help to organise events in his own time. He has been ready to share his work with this group and takes his role seriously. Daniel always works hard in class and perseveres even when faced with a challenging task. His entry in the 500 words story competition earned him a place as a runner up. He is always helpful, kind and considerate and a very trustworthy member of his class. Well done Daniel you are a credit to yourself and to Manland.


We are delighted to report that Gigi in Meteors has been chosen for the Manland Special Award for her amazing attitude to learning.  Gigi demonstrates resilience and determination on a daily basis – never giving up, no matter how hard she finds the challenge. She shows the same respect to all grown ups who help her on her learning journey – from her teacher, to her classroom assistant, to parent helpers in school. Gigi is always willing to try different approaches to help her achieve her learning goals and more recently has done exceptionally well at succeeding with her ‘minute challenges’. With the help of her grown ups at home, Gigi continues her learning outside school and even during the school holidays.  Congratulations Gigi on this fabulous achievement.
