There are many badges for school that need to be acquired on an annual basis. As the Grade 5’s and Grade 12’s move on to greater things, the prefects go with them. Every year new prefects as well as head prefects need to be chosen to assist the teachers in controlling learners in the schools. These prefects need new badges and the badges cannot simply be passed down from one year to the next. Most prefects also prefer to keep their badges so that they can remember their leadership qualities and the other characteristics that got them chosen as prefects in the first place. Make sure you choose badges that are hard wearing and will last not only one year but for a life time.
At the end of each rugby game a short ceremony is held where the winning team and man of the match are rewarded for their efforts on the rugby field. The awards for the rugby team normally include a trophy that is kept by the winning team. The man of the match can receive a smaller trophy, a medal or a plaque as well as cash reward for putting his body on the line for 80 minutes of game play. Other winning team members can also receive an award for any special role that they have played such as scoring the most tries or consistently good play.
Although it is unusual to present medals for a rugby team that has achieved success in their games, it is a way of ensuring that each team member receives an award for the part they played in the match. The man of the match normally receives a trophy but the other players are left without any form of reward for their efforts. Giving them each a medal will help them understand their value in the team and push them to aspire to greater success. These medals can be made from a variety of metals from gold inlays, silver, bronze to other alloys that are durable and long wearing.
