Recognition By participating and representing Long Bay College in co-curricular clubs and activities, junior students gain points towards Long Bay College junior badges. Badges are awarded at four levels and across six areas; Arts, Community, Innovation, Academic, Sport and Leadership. Senior students are awarded swingers to recognize their achievements within the same areas. Being proud of yourself and your achievements is paramount in developing confidence and a strong sense of self. Wearing badges and swingers with pride strengthen our community fostering a strong sense of belonging and connectedness.
