Tatura children are recognised for being ‘terrific’.
Local students were recently recognised through Terrific Kids, a project of Kiwanis International.
Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance.
‘Terrific’ is an acronym for thoughtful, enthusiastic, respectful, responsible, inclusive, friendly, inquisitive and capable.
Students work with their classroom teacher to establish goals to improve behaviour, peer relationships, attendance or school work.
All students who achieve their goals after a specified time are recognised as Terrific Kids. Recognition includes being pinned as a Terrific Kid; a pizza, ice cream or other food-themed party; and presentation of certificates and other giveaways.
A Kiwanis-family club sponsors the program at the school, providing financial support and adult and youth mentors.
Mooroopna Kiwanis Club president Garry Alexander said at the end of the 2012 school year, the club made certificate presentations to five local students, Crystal Noles, Sarah Robinson and Crystelle Gundrill at Toolamba Primary School; Brad Anderson at Dhurringile PS; and Trinity Crumpden Winmar at Ardmona Primary School.
Mr Alexander said there were four Kiwanis clubs in the Goulburn Valley region, covering schools from Mooroopna North to Dhurringile and as far as Cosgrove, plus schools in between.
He believes other schools in the area such as Undera, Tatura and Harston could possibly be involved.
