Student Representative Council Ambassadors 2019


Congratulations to all the SRC Ambassadors for Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11: Jeremiah Appleby, Jasmina Le, Mary Elyas, Manan Pokharel, Liam Wheeler, Chloe Peddler, Erin Lawson, Jenny Park, Hayley Mason, and Elisha Punay. This year the SRC Captains Arun Olifant and Hannah Triesman have this team of students to support events and feedback information to each year level. The SRC Ambassadors are the conduit for students to connect with the SRC and are each integral to student voice and agency at Koonung. All students at Koonung are welcome to attend SRC meetings every second Tuesday, but can also approach the ambassadors to provide ideas or ask questions.

World's Greatest Shave 


On behalf of the SRC, we would like to thank everyone for their involvement in Koonung’s annual World’s Greatest Shave. By the time recess was over, almost all the brownies had been depleted at the bake sale. As the bell went for lunch, within the first few minutes, a long line of eager students formed in the amphitheater for the sausage sizzle. Students and teachers watched and applauded for the brave individuals who decided to shave – some people deciding to shave right on the day!


Together, we raised an amazing amount of $3,000. This all would not have been possible without the great involvement of everyone present, SRC members, teachers, and those who shaved.

A big thank you to Jamie Nastas who raised over $1,000 online, contributing greatly to the overall sum.


We are also grateful for the help of the members of the Box Hill Institute who conducted the shaving on the day. Thank you very much for taking time out of your day to come help!


Together, we raised a significant amount of money to be donated to the Leukemia Foundation, to help beat blood cancer.
