The Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) is an accredited award for young people. JASS develops the whole individual by offering recognition in four key areas – regular physical activity (Get Active, Stay Active), exploring a personal interest (My Interests), working for the good of the community or the environment (Me and My World) and completing an outdoor activity or challenge (Adventure) and is designed so that participants move through the levels with increasing commitment, learning, and challenge.
At Hillview International School, our students get many unique opportunities thanks to the JASS programme. They have the opportunity to volunteer and support local people in need, such as our friends at Jacaranda Orphanage. Many of our students have organised and hosted their own events, such as movie nights and pool parties.
By successfully completing the allotted hours for each level, our students are awarded a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. They receive a certificate for each section they complete and both a certificate and a pin badge upon completion of all four sections in a level.
