This popular, members only service, is a complimentary service provided as part of the annual membership fee.

These certificates have been popular with our member schools for a number of years as a way of acknowledging the hard work and achievements of students as they move through each of the IB programmes.

In 2017 IB Schools Australasia added to our suite of certificates with the introduction of templates that can be used in the creation of Diploma Programme Awards Ceremony booklets. These booklets can be edited by the schools and networks to maintain both their own logo as well as that of IB Schools Australasia for use at Diploma Programme awards ceremonies.

Below is the listing of certificates available to schools as well as the criteria for schools and networks to award the certificates:

Diploma Programme

  • Certificate of Distinction for DP graduates who have achieved an IB score of 40 points or more.
  • Certificate of Merit for DP graduates who have achieved at least one Grade 7 in one subject or an ‘A’ in Extended Essay /Theory of Knowledge.
  • Certificate of outstanding Creativity, Action and Service This Certificate is to be presented within schools as they see fit for a small number of students whose CAS embodies the IB mission statement ideal. It is anticipated that there would be only one of two of these awarded in any one school.
