These award plays a vital role in providing opportunities for young people to develop essential life skills, increase their employability and foster their creativity and innovation.

Ignite Award | Year 7 and 8

In 2022 St James’ introduced the Ignite Award for our students in Year 7 and 8. The Ignite Award is designed to empower young people by playing a vital role in providing opportunities to develop essential life skills, build leadership skills and foster their creativity and innovation. By undertaking four core activities within the Award framework (physical activity, hobby, volunteering and adventure), participants strive to achieve their personal best, take ownerships of their own goals and life choices and become actively engaged within their community.
