A formal whole school assembly was held in the Gym earlier today to induct our Student Representative Council and House Captains for 2018.
The occasion was compered by Deputy Principal Mr Todd George, who officially welcomed the special guests and parent/caregivers in attendance. The ceremony also included an Acknowledgement of Country by ACEO Malcolm Miller, an address about leadership from PLHS Principal Mr Greg Barry and a special presentation to Year 9 student Zion Sambo by Art teacher Ms Wanda Jarvis.
Having previously been elected by their peers, each student leader was then individually recognised in front of their proud parents with a certificate and badge of office. Our two Principal Student Leaders for 2018, Porsha O’Brien and Liam Cowley, delivered an articulate and thoughtful address to the student body.
After the obligatory photos were taken (both inside the Gym and outside in the Amphitheatre), the SRC and House Captains joined parents and staff for a celebratory morning tea in the Staff Room.
Congratulations to our student leaders for 2018 (pictured below) – we wish you well in these important roles.
