It has been a unique and exciting start to 2019, as the student leadership team set off on their leadership journey, starting with their attendance at the 3 day YLead Conference at Queensland University in St Lucia in Brisbane in January. The leaders focussed on team building as well as personal development and planned many innovative and exciting events for 2019.
This year’s leadership group includes School Captains, Orion Matthews and Katelyn Bertram , Vice Captains, Tane Powell, Jack Drury and Hannah Ivanoff, SRC President, Caleb Kimmings SRC Secretary Erin Bamford and Committee Chairpersons, Heather van Gemeren, Amy Wendt and Imogen Hambleton.
Our team was thrilled to meet up with 2018 School Captain, Mika Francis who was one of the mentors at the conference. The team showed their true commitment with the wonderful house spirit at the Swimming Carnival and all four houses were inspired by the war cries and the Yr 12 leader’s involvement in the day.
On Monday 18 February the Senior Leadership Team and all SRC representatives were officially introduced to the school community at the 2019 Student Leader Investiture. The Year 12s are joined by Year 11 representatives, Matthew Noll, Olivia Hastie, Abbey Anderson, Emily Fuller, John Leverett and Sam Mathews. Year 10 is represented by Angelina Hambleton. Year 9 is ably represented by Tommas Austin-Milne, Ryan Boyd, Latisha Brooker, Makala Brown, Lilly Danielsen-Jensen, Emma Lynch. Krystelle Maker, Samantha Poole, Penelope Rose, Rani Savage and Alessia Tideman-Judson, with Ella Husband representing Year 8. Year 7 students Madeline Farnell, Maia Gibson, Paige Hauler, Matilda Morrison, Ryan Morrison, Loren Searle, Sarah Slack and Shelby Suell complete the SRC for 2019.
On February 15 the SRC followed a well-loved Burnside tradition with their Valentines Day roses deliveries, with many students and teachers receiving both roses and serenades in a wonderful celebration of the day. What a wonderful start to 2019 as we look forward to even more exciting upcoming events planned by this inspiring group of Burnside Leaders!!!
