Pinnacle and ACE Awards

The Academic, Conduct and Excellence ACE (Year 12) and the Pinnacle Awards (Years 7 to 11) are part of Orange High School's enhanced reward system.


The awards are designed to not only recognise student academic achievement but also to foster and develop our students' sense of self identity. Community involvement and participation in extra curricula activities is also recognised as part of the award. Along with an enhancement of the reward priorities, an additional ‘bronze level' has been introduced to recognise strong efforts and improvement in reports.


Principal Gold is awarded to all students who achieve outstanding or high in the Overall Achievement grades in all subjects.


Principal Silver is awarded to all students who achieve always in their Personal Profiles in most subject areas.


Principal Bronze is awarded to all students whose report reflects overall strong effort and/or significant improvement in their learning and attitude to school.


Distribution of the Mid Course Reports provides an ideal opportunity for parents to discuss with their children achievements and where required areas for further development. We encourage all students to aspire to the school motto "Quod Potero Sedulo", whatever we do, we do it to the best of our ability.
