Riverlands School wins a PALS Award in the Health category for their intensive reading intervention program.
“With the aid of this program, the students were able to make more than one and a half year’s reading gains in just two terms, which totally transformed their attitudes towards school,” said school coordinator Liz Marcus.
Runner Up: The runner-up school in each category receives a prize for their winning PALS project. Category Winners: Category winners each receive a prize for their award winning PALS project. Troy Cook Ambassador Award: The winning school receives a prize for their PALS project. 2013 Overall Winners Prize: This prize is awarded to the school whose project is deemed to have the most significant impact on improving relationships in their local community. The overall winning school receives a prize.
To take part in the PALS awards, schools need to establish an idea for a reconciliation project. The project can be about anything that promotes reconciliation. In recent years we've seen educational DVDs, murals, excursions, handmade books, bush tucker gardens, and many more. Check out award winning projects from last year.
