THE DUX AWARD
Sedaven Primary School recognizes that certain learners not only achieve excellent academic results, but that they excel in all other aspects of school life.
Sedaven Primary School therefore acknowledges the additional effort and rewards a learner with the presentation of the prestigious and coveted Dux Award.
The word Dux is Latin for “leader”. In schools, Dux is a modern title given to the top learner. Most schools around the world regard academic excellence as the only - or most important - criterion for the award. At Sedaven Primary School, we have introduced additional criteria, which include, amongst others, academic excellence, demonstrated spirituality, leadership qualities, helpfulness, trustworthiness, and integrity.
The recipient of the Sedaven Primary School Dux Award is therefore a learner who has not only excelled academically, but one who has impeccable character which is beyond reproach. The recipient is a learner who is a role model for his or her peers.
