House Captains will be announced at the assembly this Friday. On Friday March 3rd house and overall captains will be presented with their badges, so mark your diary, as always all are welcome! Overall captains will be making their captains speeches at this assembly so it promises to be an exciting day for our student leaders. Also on March 3rd we will be having a Level 6 barbecue for our senior students. This event is free of charge. Level 6 bomber jackets have also been ordered and we are hoping they will be available on this day – we have our fingers crossed but it is a bus time for the providers so we are hoping for the best.
I would also like to mention the role of school leaders. Previously all level 6 students have had a leadership role. There has been a lot of consideration and discussion given to this issue with staff. Some students were nominated leaders for one position or another but in reality they didn’t really have anything of real value to do. They were simply given a title. As a whole staff we believe roles were given for the sake of giving roles. So this year we are changing the approach. We still have overall captains, sports and house captains. As far as other leadership roles are concerned however, it is up to the Art teachers (for example) to elect Art Leaders if they identify students who are ready willing and able to fulfil the role which will be negotiated between the students/teachers.
