“Noub”, the Coptic word for golden coins, is HGSCS money which is earned in classes for performance, participation, and attendance. Noub is only redeemable for items at the HGSCS store.

Reward System

HGSCS is adopting a Trimester Evaluation for all students. Evaluations will occur approximately in the months of January, May, and September. After each evaluation, students will be rewarded based on their performance. Preschool to Grade 2 students will be handed age appropriate gifts. Students from Grade 1 to Grade 12 will receive Noub according to the table below.

Courses 1st Place(1) 2nd Place(1) 3rd Place(1) Participation(2)
Hymns 20 Noub 15 Noub 10 Noub 5 Noub
Rites 20 Noub 15 Noub 10 Noub 5 Noub
Coptic 20 Noub 15 Noub 10 Noub 5 Noub
Memorization 20 Noub 15 Noub 10 Noub 5 Noub
Attendance(3) 20 Noub 15 Noub 10 Noub 5 Noub


  1. If there is more than one student ranking the same, both students will be awarded the same number of Noub based on their rank.
  2. Participation is for students that wrote the test with a passing mark of 50% (or attended more than 50% of the classes) but did not rank in the top 3.
  3. Poor behaviour automatically disqualifies students from receiving Noub for attendance.



Only Noub can be used to redeem items at the HGSCS store. The store is managed by Tasony Maria and is open on Saturday evenings for students to redeem their gifts. Currently available items are displayed below with their Noub value. Items are being added continuously to the store so please check this page frequently.
