Berry Public School is very fortunate to have the support of our community organisations and individuals who have provided scholarships and awards to be given to deserving students each year. These include Edith Robertson, Ings Family, Berry Alliance, Hands Across Australia NSW and Bomaderry High School.
The Berry Way Award is given to a student who is actively practising the Berry Way each fortnight. Class awards are also presented each fortnight to hard working students.
Our students can take advantage of several scholarship and award opportunities.
The Premier’s Spelling Bee is an annual competition that encourages primary school students in Years 3 to 6 to develop their spelling skills in a fun and educational way. Students are selected at school level to take part in regional finals. Regional winners then compete in the state final.
This Premier’s Reading Challenge encourages students from Kindergarten to Year 9 to develop a love of reading and plays an important role in developing literacy.
The Premier’s Debating Challenge is open to students from Year 5 to 12. Teams compete in a round robin series of debates against other schools. The winners go on to compete at regional and state level to determine the eventual state champion.
The Arts Unit offers public speaking competitions for NSW school students. Each competition is a great opportunity for students to develop their speech-writing and presentation skills while representing their schools in a state-wide competition.
The Nanga Mai Awards are an annual event organised by Aboriginal Education and Communities Directorate. The awards recognise and celebrate innovation, excellence and educational achievement in Aboriginal education in NSW public schools, school communities and department directorates.
