Campaspe News - - FRONT PAGE -

THE past, present and fu­ture lead­ers of Rochester Se­condary Col­lege put their brains to­gether on Fri­day.

The an­nual day saw stu­dents from year 10, 11, 12 join forces with RSC alumni and con­verge on the Rochester Sports Club for a day of work­shops and try outs.

SRC fa­cil­i­ta­tor Ruth Borger said they are lucky to have such ded­i­cated past stu­dents.

‘‘It is lovely to see our past stu­dents come and help out as well as those year 12 stu­dents cur­rently in the middle of their ex­ams,’’ she said.

‘‘The day aims to be a try outs day for stu­dents want­ing a po­si­tion on the 2018 stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive coun­cil.

‘‘Ap­pli­cants for the roles of pres­i­dent, sec­re­tary, trea­surer, pub­lic­ity and events com­plete a se­ries of games and tasks, de­signed to help them show­case their team­work skills and learn about the SRC at the same time.’’

Ms Borger said this year's ap­pli­cants were trained by past stu­dents Ebony Hooper, Abra­ham Hooper, Demi Ir­win, Kahla Else and year 12 stu­dents Ja­cob Baker, Jack Wick­ham, Stephanie Else and Genevieve Foott.

‘‘Stu­dents tend to re­spond bet­ter to peo­ple who have done the jobs they are ap­ply­ing for,’’ she said.

‘‘They also seem to ap­pre­ci­ate the ef­fort that these young peo­ple are go­ing to on their be­half. Af­ter all, most of them have just fin­ished study­ing for the year or are busy work­ing, so we are hon­oured that they choose to come back and help out.’’

Judg­ing by the en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pa­tion on the day, the col­lege has an­other great crop of fu­ture lead­ers to choose from.
