Badges – ANI Taonga (treasure)

How to read/use the

badge boards.

There is one badge board for every badge you can earn at ANI. On each badge board it outlines the current way you can earn that specific badge.

Where you see this symbol, it means it is a badge earned by a student for something they have completed /achieved.

Most badges can be earned by students. There are a few badges (e.g. special services to your house, principal's badge) which are awarded to a student by a staff member or student leader. They are marked with this symbol.

How to apply for a badge.

Now that you've earned a badge, it's time to apply. We have an application form that your teacher will share with you. (Teachers, it is on the virtual staff room.)
Students, fill out the application form, make sure you get your teacher's approval, and show them any evidence you need to support your application.
Each week the strategic leaders go through the applications and will deliver your badge to you as soon as they can.

Happy Applying!
