Karuah Public School’s 2017 student leaders were announced at the Presentation Day Assembly recently held at Karuah RSL.
The incoming captains Sophie Fowler and Shaqueil Saunders together with vice captains Daly Considine and Sarah Emanuel are now officially part of the school leadership team.
As part of their induction, Relieving Principal Mrs Allardice invited the proud parents to pin the badges on the young leaders during the formal assembly.
Getting straight to work, the students have already taken up their leadership duties by assisting the outgoing captains with the final school assembly for the year.
Assistant Principal Mrs Saffioti said by shadowing the current leaders, the new captains had the opportunity to learn the ropes of their new positions.
“It’s the changing of the torch and a proud moment for students, parents and our community,” she said.
As part of their role, the young leaders will assist with assemblies and other school events as well as representing the school in the wider community.
Mrs Allardice thanked the outgoing captains Cory Bolton and Ashley Walker and vice captains Eloise Gentle and Cohen Jarmain and commended them on a job well done during their 12 months of leadership.
Mrs Allardice also wished the students well for their upcoming journey to high school.
