The award of the Colour is to recognise a boy's contribution to the school in a particular area. Only full colour awards are given to senior students (Year 12 and 13). Year 9, 10 and 11 students will receive a junior colour certificate. First and second year tiered awards will be given to reflect consistency of service over time.
Nominations for the award will be made by the supervising teacher of the activity. These will be considered by the Awards Committee who will make recommendations for awards to the Headmaster. Awards will only be distributed three times throughout the year at the special Colours assemblies.
There will be five broad categories within which awards will be made:
NB: The awards will not be made to a boy if basic School Rules are not followed (discipline, attendance – including attendance at practices, uniform, behaviour). Students need to have met Akina Man Values and demonstrated a firm commitment to Hastings Boys' High School.
Applications are to be submitted to the school office. Forms are available from the office and downloaded from here.
