2016 Junior School Leadership

Recently we selected our Leadership team for 2016. Our new captains Kelsey Paterson and Amber Wild gave a most polished speech at the Investiture Assembly.

Congratulations to all the Year 6 girls who presented themselves so well when receiving their Year 6 badge. They have already proven to be excellent role models and support to the younger girls in the Junior School. Given the quality of our Year 6 girls this year, it is fortunate that there are still other opportunities for others to take leadership roles during the year. Special congratulations also go to the Semester 1 Years 3-5 Class Captains and Fantastic Friends for 2016.

Fantastic Friends’ Program

Fantastic Friends is a peer support program we are offering for the eighth time to the girls in Year 5 and 6. A group of girls are selected and trained as ‘Fantastic Friends’.  The girls are trained in conflict resolution strategies and peer support skills involving the use of role play, group brainstorming and personal reflection. 

Our experience is that our girls enthusiastically and selflessly give up time to assist fellow students, particularly the younger girls, by helping students develop resilience and self-confidence. The girls also help resolve minor disagreements as well as offering friendship and care for the girls in Prep to Year 3.

Our Fantastic Friends show tremendous initiative and maturity in undertaking this special responsibility. As a result of being involved in this program the girls grow in confidence and develop skills which will be valuable and worthwhile for many years to come.
