Year 11 students are now considering applying for leadership positions for next year. During our Utility times, we have been discussing the importance of diversifying their experiences at school, and how contributing to the wider community will offer them the opportunity to develop themselves personally, learn new skills, and have a say in the operations of the Senior College. Universities look beyond the ATAR and appreciate when students engage themselves in a broad range of activities.
Students are able to nominate for School Leader and House Captain positions, with voting occurring early next week. The process is three-fold, as the school will consider the votes of their peers and staff, their contribution and engagement within the school community, and an interview with a panel of staff. Those who are successful will be made aware of their position over the upcoming school holidays and will be announced to the School Community at Celebration Evening on Wednesday 18 October.
Additionally, early in Term 4, nominations for various co-curricular Captain positions for 2018 will become available; and, again students will have the chance to nominate for these positions. The staff member responsible for the given co-curricular activity will conduct interviews where needed and select the successful candidate(s).
