Thank you to Captains 

We would like to thank and acknowledge our school captains and prefects for being wonderful role models this year. It has been a pleasure working closely with them and we wish them every success in high school. 


We invited our outgoing leaders to share their advice to our students for one last time; 


Ayla: Take time to know yourself and don’t hide it. I’ll do it now and feel free to respond. Never back down, never what…. (Students respond) never give up!

Joel: Always remember, never sweat the small stuff. Enjoy your life.

Olive: My advice to you is a quote from the great Albert Einstein “Life is like riding a bicycle to keep your balance you must keep moving.”

Cody: Always make sure everyone is valued, respected and cared for in school and out of school.

The  current Captains  passed on the leaders’ school blazer to their successors; 

Girl School Captain for 2024: Phoebe Farrant-Wills

Boy School Captain for 2024:  Ricky Hird

Girl Prefect for 2024: Jorja Jamieson

Boy Prefect for 2024: Alex Davis
