Peponi Sports Awards Policy

At Peponi School, we encourage our pupils to reach their full potential in all aspects of sport. An important aspect of this encouragement is to recognise and award those learners who have excelled on and off the sports field. Colours are objective and transparently awarded to these individuals. The colours system is designed in such a manner as to facilitate the continual drive for excellence and improvement throughout their schooling career at Peponi School.

Peponi Sports has a number of outstanding athletes who compete and represent the school at a variety of levels. As a school we are keen to award pupils for their attitude, achievement and effort towards sport.
