Induction of Primary Leaders

The Induction of Primary Leaders was held last week on 13 March and we look forward to an exciting year of opportunities for all our student leaders – Primary Captains, House Captains and Student Council Representatives. This year we introduced two more leadership positions – Performing Arts Captains. After the assembly where students pledged to uphold the values of the College and be a good role model, a parent, grandparent or other significant adult pinned the leadership badge on each of our leaders. The morning tea and celebration cake was enjoyed by the students and their guests.

I would like to thank Mrs Mitchell, Mrs Jen and our teaching assistants for making this such an enjoyable celebration of achievement.

These are the first of the leadership positions for 2015.  During the year, our Year 6 students will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by serving in a variety of ways across the primary school.  As they earn a certain number of points, they will receive their leadership badge at assemblies throughout the year.

POOL FENCING AROUND JUNIOR PLAY AREA

With the removal of the construction fence for our new buildings, pool fencing will be installed to keep our students safe. By Term 2, the Year 1 students and Prep Maroon will be in their new “homes”.  This is an exciting time for our primary staff and students. The last week of Term 1 will be a very busy time with Parent/Teacher interviews and moving classroom furniture and equipment, particularly on Thursday 2 April, but it will be a real joy to have new classrooms for these staff and students.
