Work Ethic Honour Roll

Burnaby South recognizes that development of a good work ethic extends far beyond High School.

To that end, the Work Ethics Honour Roll will recognize students who achieve straight “G’s” (and/or “E’s”) in all their classes for each term.

The number of classes a student is enrolled in does not factor into whether a student is eligible or not.

Work Ethics Honour Roll Criteria is as follows:

Students will receive a mark out of 4 (Exceeds Expectations, Fully Meets Expectations, Meets Minimal Expectations or Not Yet Within Expectations), based on 4 different criteria (Responsibility, Respect, Participation, Cooperation & Teamwork), for a maximum of 16 points.

  • To receive an “E” (Excellent), a student must achieve 16 points
  • To receive a “G” (Good), a student must achieve between 12-15 points
  • To receive an “S” (Satisfactory), a student must achieve between 8-11 points
  • To receive an “N” (Needs Improvement), a student must achieve 7 or less points
