The Prin­ci­pal was de­lighted to in­duct our new stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tives in front of the whole school, par­ents and stu­dent lead­ers from our lo­cal pri­mary schools.

They are also our so­cial con­science as they raise money for dif­fer­ent char­i­ties and sup­port a va­ri­ety of causes that they feel are im­por­tant. This year they are be­ing ably lead by their pres­i­dent, Damian Shah­fa­zli with the sup­port of Mia Rowe as Vice Pres­i­dent.
