Student Leadership Team for 2018/2019 Inducted

On Tuesday June 26 the College held a very inspirational Leadership Assembly where the 2017/2018 Student Leadership Team were thanked and the recently announced 2018/2019 team were inducted into their new roles.

Portfolio Leaders were announced on June 20 and the SRC President and Vice President and the Head Girl and Assistant Head Girl were announced earlier in June.

Director of Pastoral Care, Anne-Maree Donnelly says that this year, for the first time, our 2018/2019 Student Leadership Team commenced their leadership roles at the beginning of Term 3: " In the past, our leaders for the following year started in Term 4. The rationale behind this change was to give our Year 12 girls increased support as they focus on their HSC studies. It’s also a great chance for our Year 12 girls to mentor the new leaders from Year 11 ‘on the job.’ We are very confident this will benefit all students.”

The Student Leadership Team for 2018/2019 is as follows:

HEAD GIRL: Sophie Brown
CREATIVE & PERFORMING ARTS LEADERS: Kallista Pudun and Elloise Sfeir
DEBATING & PUBLIC SPEAKING LEADERS: Lisa Khouri and Gabrielle Mizzi
