Academic Excellence Citations and Engagement Citations – Semester Two

I am delighted to publish the names of students who have achieved academic and engagement awards for commitment to their studies during Semester Two. As I review the data for the semester, I am once again impressed by the strong relationship between a student’s deliberate engagement, as represented by the Engagement Point Average, or EPA, and his overall performance, as indicated by his GPA. To the students who have been awarded a citation for strong growth in their EPA, and also earned a citation for academic excellence or growth, well done! You are a reminder for all students seeking to improve their academic performance to begin by focussing upon feedback about their academic engagement behaviours.

Academic Excellence

The first category of Academic Excellence Citation is based upon a student’s Grade Point Average. Students in Years 7 to 10 and HSC candidates with a GPA of 13 or greater on the 15 point grade scale have achieved consistently outstanding academic performance. IB Diploma students with a GPA of 6.4 on the 7 point grade scale have achieved similarly robust results. 

The second category of Academic Excellence recognises students who improve their personal GPA, from one Semester to the next, by 2.0 or more points. This kind of academic growth is not possible without a renewed commitment to the engagement behaviours and the embracing of academic challenges.

Engagement Citation

Trinity has defined, and reports feedback on, the behaviours that characterise personal academic success:  self-management, task management, learning focus and persistence. These scores are collated as an Engagement Point Average. Students who score an EPA of 4.8 or greater on the 5-point scale, achieve an Engagement Citation.

Students who improve their EPA by 1.0 point or greater have demonstrated their ability to receive and act upon feedback and take responsibility for the actions that lead to academic success. These students are acknowledged for their courage to change their behaviours and the way they interact with learning challenges.

The Semester Two awardees are celebrated here. Each boy is congratulated upon a fine achievement.
