Mrs Sharon Barker (Principal):
Mrs Barker thanked everyone for attending today’s special assembly and congratulated all form captains for being selected as college leaders.
Coles Staff: Kylie Humston and Tenae Whitnall from Coles Highfields were presented Values Certificates for ‘Kindness’ from Mrs Barker.  Coles at Highfields has kindly donated various school supplies to our college to be utilised for students in need of support with their learning.  The generosity and kindness shown by Coles Highfields is much appreciated.
International Women’s Day: Mrs Barker expressed her pleasure at attending functions within the region with our school leaders. She mentioned that she was always complimented on the behaviour of our school leaders and wanted to formally thank them for being such excellent school ambassadors.
HSSC acknowledge International Women’s Day and we also acknowledge International Men’s Day each year.  Our college offers all students the opportunity to succeed and we encourage students to set goals in their well-being class.  Several of our students have achieved their goal of becoming leaders today, however there is more to being a leader than just wearing a badge.  Being a leader means you are taking extra responsibility each and every day and you lead by example by respecting our school values in all school settings.  Mrs Barker reminded students that ‘the standard you walk past is the standard you accept’ and this sends a clear message that ‘that is ok’.  Mrs Barker encouraged all students to speak up if they saw or heard something that isn’t part of the ‘Highfields Way’ because each and every one of you are part of our school community.
Parents were thanked again by Mrs Kennedy for supporting their students in their leadership roles and then assembly was closed.
Photographs from this assembly will appear in next week’s newsletter.
