Employee Awards

Awards-the Concept and the Process

We believe that efforts, talents and achievements need to be recognized, noticed, acknowledged and honored. Awards are seen not only as a “prize” for the outcome, but an appreciation and a celebration of the journey that took them towards this destination.

The categories of awards reflect the Orchid ethos of recognizing each child’s innate potential, acknowledging that areas of excellence and talent are diverse and equally significant .These awards are envisioned to be effective tools to reiterate to the students that the more effort and contribution they put in, the more they will get out of it in the end. We are doing our best to acknowledge and recognize those pupils who deserve to be rewarded and we also hope that this would motivate others as it is setting achievable goals for them.

Awards for which level and why?

Awards are for the Upper Primary, Secondary and Sr. Secondary School. At this age children show readiness to accept and acknowledge their accomplishments. They are aware of their abilities and set targets to aim higher.

The awards are distributed ceremoniously to bring in the essence of success. The students are awarded during the Award Ceremony where the parents are also invited.

The school recognizes both Scholastic and Co - scholastic areas and commendable effort put in by the student.


Every year, each child who achieves Outstanding scores (above 90%in Secondary & Sr. Secondary Classes) and in Primary Classes (90% and above) in any language and (95% and above) in Math, Science and Social Science (Annual result – Term 1 + Term 2) will receive a certificate for “Outstanding Performance in ____________________ (subject)”.

The students who achieve Outstanding scores in all subjects will get a Certificate of Excellence and a trophy..

The certificate for “Commendable Progress in Academics ___________” [subject] will be awarded to a student when he/she shows an improvement in his/her performance from SA I to SA 2 (25% and above).

Perfect Score: A certificate of appreciation and a medal for achieving 100% marks in one or more subject in either SA I and / or SA II.

* For Classes V to VIII the Composite Marathi and Composite German will be considered together as one subject for all categories of award even though the assessment is done separately. The average of both the composite subjects will be taken to consider for the award.


These awards will be given to 1 student each from Class IV and V, and one each from Secondary (Junior group - VI & VII) and Secondary (Senior Group - VIII, IX, X). To select students who are deserving of this award, subject teacher gives feedback and nominates 3 students, based on parameters derived from CCE criteria. A panel of all significant adults along with the subject teachers then selects one student. The ultimate decision would be based on a democratic process.

The various categories of awards are:

  • Dance- 1 award each for Bharatnatyam and Contemporary.
  • Music – 1 award each for Western and Indian music
  • Percussion – 1 award each for Drums and Tabla.
  • Visual Arts – 1 award
