Blues nominations are called for during Term Three each year for Blues in Performing Arts or Sport. Academic Blues are given out at a special assembly at the beginning of the year and then acknowledged during the Blues Evening. Students/parents/coaches/teachers in charge of sport are invited to pick up an application form from around the college or via the website to put forward a student to receive an award. The forms will have the selection period on them and also the close-off date.
Awarding of Blues is at the discretion of the Taieri College Blues Committee. Awarding of Blues previously is not an indication of future awards. A large number of factors will be taken into account when deciding who will receive a Blue. The awarding of a Blue is the premier award at Taieri College and as such the prestige of the award must be maintained.
