What you need to know about our Good Standing Program

At Esperance Anglican Community School, we seek to promote high standards in all that we do through positive, proactive encouragement rather than simply punishing wrongdoers. We aim to achieve this through a system of Good Standing.

All students begin each year with their ‘Good Standing’ in place, enabled to take advantage of all the benefits and privileges that being a student of EACS incorporates.

Students maintain their Good Standing by meeting the School’s expectations across five key focus areas:

  1. Commitment to Learning
  • Listen to and follow Teacher instructions
  • Engage in a cooperative manner
  • Remain on task and achieve their personal best
  • Submit homework and assessment tasks by their due date
  1. Responsible Behaviour
  • Adhere to the School’s Code of Conduct as outlined in the student diary.
  1. Uniform Standards
  • Conform to the School Uniform Guidelines
  • Be neat, tidy and well presented at all times
  • Provide a valid explanatory note from a Parent/Guardian when out of uniform
  1. Work Readiness
  • Maintain regular attendance
  • Choose the appropriate attitude
  • Adhere to routines and protocol
  • Be prepared with required materials
  • Engage as appropriate to the lesson
  1. Service Learning
  • Year 7 – 1 hour per term
  • Year 8 – 2 hours per term
  • Year 9 – 3 hours per term
  • Year 10 – 4 hours per term
  • Year 11 and 12 – No minimum expectation
  • (Option: SCSA Community Service Endorsed Program)

Positive (FISH! Points and Commendation Certificates) and negative (‘Strikes’) aspects of student interaction and engagement are monitored and recorded in SEQTA.

The accumulation of two or more strikes in any given week results in a series of lunchtime detentions.

Students can achieve promotion to ‘Advanced Standing’ by displaying exemplary behaviour throughout the semester
