Each year our senior students apply and present speeches about the values they role model, past leadership experience, and the qualities they bring, and can build upon, as a Senior Leader.
As year 6 and 7 will be heading off to High School at the end of 2021, students from both year levels were given the opportunity to try out for these roles. Being interviewed by teachers in front of peers is a daunting task and credit goes to every single one of our students who tried out.
Once students have presented, a democratic process is used by peers to vote for students who they believe will best represent them and lead in a number of different ways across the school. With teacher and leadership oversight a final section of students are chosen to represent the year level.
We congratulate the following eight Year 6 Students:
- Vanessa L, Harry B-T, Macy P, Ashlyn H, Christian H, Peter M, Charlie P and Bianca W
With too close a call to separate two students for our Year 7 positions this year we congratulate nine Year 7 Senior Leaders:
- Alex King, Lilah Curnow, Warisat Hossain, Evan Yang, Trishaa Rao, Abbi Rankine, Jessica Quach, Alisha Bergineti & Amber Pitfield.
These leaders have already been hard at work feeding back and planning our whole-school student focused curriculum opportunities. They narrowed down a summary of student choices, worked out democratic processes to ensure fair selections and have helped to narrow down potential names for our student driven activity time. They’re already realising the complex challenges of implementing a new initiative and the planning that needs to occur to ensure it happens well. What an active and involved way to begin their leadership roles.
A huge congratulations to all of our Senior Leaders. We look forward to helping you to build your leadership skills.
