Mr McDonald said, “The leaders have settled in extremely well, and ran their first assembly on Monday.” “They showed confidence, and at all times have respected the Aussie 5 school values.” When the Year six leaders were asked if they were nervous they all replied “No” and when asked how they felt to be the leaders they all agreed they were proud and happy and thought it was amazing.
