Rotary Values School Awards
Christchurch Avon-Otakaro Rotary have annual awards for Intermediate students who meet Rotary values rather than academic/sporting awards.
They run an annual prize giving for schools in their area. It is for students in Intermediate schools (or equivalent) who have reflected Rotary values - and who might not otherwise get a prize for academic or sporting achievement. It is the jewel in the crown of their club activities as it is very well received.
They also do a prize giving for students “graduating” a youth offenders facility which is also very well received. Members who go along say that find it very moving as these kids often get nothing.
They also provide prizes to two high schools in their area for a student who has overcome difficulties that year.
