Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege wel­comed their new pri­mary and sec­ondary school lead­ers of 2014 dur­ing a re­cent lead­er­ship in­duc­tion cer­e­mony.

More than 400 stu­dents, teach­ers, sup­port staff and com­mu­nity mem­bers at­tended the cer­e­mony which was held at the school hall on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 10.

The sec­ondary school cap­tains for 2014 are Matthew Hen­ning and Louisa Sum­mers­gill, while the sec­ondary house cap­tains are Tayla Evans and Lo­gan Kohler.

Young lead­ers Emma Carr and Nakeisha Taavao were hon­oured to take on their role as pri­mary school cap­tains, while Shelby Boase and Syd­ney Henzell were de­lighted to be an­nounced as the pri­mary house lead­ers.

An­other ma­jor high­light of the cer­e­mony was the in­duc­tion of the Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil (SRC) mem­bers which will be headed by pres­i­dent Mitzi Nieu­woudt and sec­re­tary Hema Supra­ma­niam.

Mem­bers of the SRC are made up of stu­dents from year 3 through to year 12 and all mem­bers will play an ac­tive role in mak­ing de­ci­sion to ben­e­fit the school com­mu­nity.

Other SRC mem­bers are Made­line Beale, Liam To­mas, Jes­sica Smith, Jor­dyn Dev­ery, Kobe Ford, Ai­den Payet, Joel Henzell, Danika Kunz, Brendan Hoff­man, Ken­zii Docherty, Kyle Kunz, Re­becca Hignett and Brooke Tu­paea.

Prin­ci­pal Nathan McDon­ald said the cer­e­mony sym­bol­ised the start of a new school year and was the time for stu­dents and teach­ers to come to­gether to com­mence the process of teach­ing and learn­ing.

“As I look for­ward to what lies ahead for Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege in 2014, I am filled with ex­cite­ment about the op­por­tu­ni­ties that will be af­forded to our stu­dents,” he said.

“From prep to year 12, there will be a wide range of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams and ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer that will sup­port stu­dents in their de­vel­op­ment aca­dem­i­cally, so­cially, emo­tion­ally and spir­i­tu­ally.”
