A record field and difficult decision ahead

A record number of Year 5 students have nominated for one of just four school leader positions in 2018. Captains and Vice Captains will be decided this Friday following speeches from each of the 14 candidates.

Our senior students have shown tremendous school spirit this year through their enthusiastic involvement in so many areas of school life. RUOK day, various fundraisers, junior school buddies and the day to day roles that come with being a responsible school citizen, are just some examples of their developing leadership capacity.

Congratulations to the following students for your involvement in the life of the school and for your eagerness to have a go:

Julie Charlesworth

Riley Da Costa

Ti-Amour Kupenga
