The Colour Level System
The Colour Level System is an important part of our school community that monitors student effort and behaviour.
The Wellbeing Team oversees the Colour Level System which encourages students to participate in both school and community service opportunities. The school's clearly defined Colour Level System promotes and rewards positive behaviour. Students who attain higher colour levels enjoy extra privileges.
All students begin on the Green Level and are encouraged to seek promotion to higher colour levels to attain extra privileges.
Inappropriate behaviour or the inability to follow school rules and expectations, will see students demoted to lower colour levels and placed on restrictions until their actions improve.
The Colour Level Systems provide incentives clearly aligned to an effort and reward value system. The boys take pride in their personal Colour Level Achievements and presents positive modelling for their fellow students.
The highest Merit level possible at Farrer awarded as the student has displayed a special commitment to the Farrer
community and its improvement as well as having consistently maintained an excellent record of behaviour, deserving additional
recognition of his efforts.
Students can enjoy special privileges on Gold Level
The student has been awarded this Merit level as they have consistently shown good behaviour and attitude, as indicated
by records and the colour committee agrees that the student deserves to be awarded this level based on their ongoing commitment to the
values of the school.
Students can enjoy special privileges on Silver Level
The student has achieved this Merit level as they have consistently shown good behaviour and attitude, as indicated by
records and the colour committee agrees that the student deserves to be awarded this level based on their ongoing commitment to the
values of the school.
Students can enjoy special privileges on Bronze Level
All students start at this merit level. The Farrer Family expects that students already possess this level of good conduct
and will strive to maintain this level of good conduct. It is also expected that students will be cooperative and courteous and
participate fully in school activities.
This is the standard level of merit.
Students are placed on this demerit level as it has been found that the student has committed a serious misdemeanour/s,
or that his conduct and behaviour in general warrants that he be placed on this level or because the principal or deputy has demoted the
student for not demonstrating Farrer’s values.
Restrictions and consequences apply on Brown Level
Students are placed on this demerit level as the student’s behaviour has not improved despite help given to him -
his behaviour is deliberately unacceptable or relevant staff have recommended the student’s placement on this level for seriously
ignoring the rights of others.
Restrictions and consequences apply on Orange Level
Students are placed on this Demerit level as the student has not accepted help offered to him at other colour levels,
or the principal or executive have recommended the student’s placement on this level for a serious breach of the code of acceptable
behaviour or a serious misdemeanour.
Restrictions and consequences apply on Red Level including the consideration of suspension or their place at Farrer being considered vacant
