“Authentic Grit" is the passionate pursuit of hard goals that awes and inspires others to become better people, flourish emotionally, take positive risks and live their best lives (Miller, C., 2019).
Duckworth (2017) found that some of the strengths that underpin grit, such as optimism and impulse control, are inherited, however many of the traits and behaviours of authentic grit can be learned. For example, goal-setting is a learnable science, as is self-regulation and building positive relationships.
It is suggested to cultivate gritty behaviour, is to build positive relationships with others (Miller, C, 2019). People with authentic grit foster teamwork and camaraderie, they flourish in their relationships and lift other people up. One strategy to build positive relationships and boost our personal sense of accomplishment at QAHS is to celebrate our achievements and those achievements of others (Quaid & Kern, 2019).
This week at QAHS we celebrated the accomplishments of our students via the Honours Board. At our whole school assembly we acknowledged students who have achieved academic excellence across their subject areas.
To qualify for the QAHS Honours Board in each semester, students in Year 10 require a minimum 5 A grades and no less than a C in their six subject areas. Students in Year 11 and 12 require a minimum IB progressive score of 34 in their HL and SL subjects (Year 12 also includes TOK). Additionally, students must achieve nothing less than a 3 in HL subjects, nothing less than a 4 in SL subjects and nothing less than a C in TOK (TOK contributes 1 point for a C grade, 2 points for a B grade and 3 points for a C grade). CAS Green Flag status is also required to qualify for the Honours Board.
We congratulate the many students who appear on the QAHS Honours Board for Semester 1 2022 for their outstanding achievements.
