Assembly News Dated 7th February 2018

Assembly : Wednesday, 7th February 2018
Assembly was opened by Deputy Principal Mrs Jayne Kennedy.
New Deputy Principal: Mrs Kennedy introduced our new Deputy Principal, Mrs Tracy Priebe to the assembly.  As the total number of students enrolled at the college has reached 831, we are now entitled to another deputy principal.
Values Certificates: Ms Seydel awarded Jayme Mitchell-Charles a ‘Responsibility’ Values Certificate.  Jayme earned his certificate for reminding his friends to put on hats before moving onto the oval at lunchtime. 
School Leaders: Kilian Keenan and Amara Phillips recently attended the Pioneer Village on the Australia Day long weekend as school representatives.  They prepared a speech about ‘What Australia Day means to them’.  Kilian had the pleasure of presenting the speech to students on assembly this week.  The underlying message was made very clear… that Australians  are so lucky to have ‘freedom of choice’.  Well done Kilian and Amara.
