It has certainly been a bustling start to the year with our Girls Grammar Family BBQ, Welcome Assembly, Student Transition Program, and first Sisters Meeting all taking place within the first two weeks.
The opportunity to welcome 80 new students and their families into the Girls Grammar community has been an exciting and busy time for everyone.
From the conversations I have had with staff and students it appears to have been a positive and engaging experience for all.
This week, voting for our 2023 Student Council leaders in Years 4 - 11 was also finalised.
Nominating students were required to write and present a two-minute speech on the qualities they would bring to the role and how they would represent their peers. It was great to see our new students take the opportunity to put themselves forward for these positions as well.
At Girls Grammar, there are numerous opportunities for our girls to develop and showcase their leadership skills both inside and outside the classroom; students may take on leadership roles in sports teams, school projects, study groups, Student Council or as a Prefect.
Through the School’s leadership initiatives, students make a significant contribution to our school community. They help create a positive and inclusive culture, foster teamwork, collaboration and social responsibility among their peers whilst developing their own skills in the areas of communication, problem-solving, decision-making and time management.
Successful candidates for Student Council positions will be announced in Care next week with formal recognition occurring at our Investiture Ceremony, Wednesday 8 February. I wish all of our nominating students, who have shown the initiative and courage to apply, the very best of luck.
