Initiation Ceremony

Students showing the Beacon Initiation badge.

The Beacon Initiation Ceremony is a special occasion to welcome the new cohort of pupils into the Beacon community of learners.  It also initiates our pupils into the Beacon Culture which encourages all members of the Beacon community to SHINE - Serve with compassion; Honour relationships with integrity, Innovate with passion, Navigate with resourcefulness and Excel through ownership in learning.  Each pupil receives their initiation symbol, a medal, on stage from the school leaders.  Witnessed by their parents, they then pledge their commitment to do their best for themselves and the school.  This symbolic event reminds pupils of their commitment to excellence and responsibility as Beacons.
