This is the 2nd time our school has participated in Principal for the Day. It is an excellent way to highlight the importance of student voice and student leadership within our school.
Principal Tyson was already well known to many of the students at our school because of his friendly outgoing personality so of course he was a popular choice when elected.

What would you like to do if you were Principal for a day?
The Eastertastic Egg-ar-art Competition was a huge success! The students were extremely creative in their designs. They had 15 minutes to produce their ‘egg-art’ masterpieces and coped well with the pressure of the competition.
The SRC did an amazing job planning the event, decorating the hall with balloons and streamers and in organising a selection of music that had the students dancing on their way to the tables. It was a difficult decision selecting the finalists and winners. Many amazing egg designs missed out on being chosen. However everyone had a great time. The event ran smoothly and there were lots of happy, smiling faces!
Five hundred dollars was raised and this will be given to the Royal Children’s Hospital during the Good Friday Appeal.
Well done SRC we can’t wait to see what you will be organising next!

STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL (SRC)
We began our first SRC session with our twenty Grade 5 & 6 leaders sharing a delicious early morning breakfast. We enjoyed pancakes, fruit salad, yoghurt, cereal and toast. This was a fantastic way to get to know each other and celebrate the beginning of our friendship and journey as the 2014 SRC.
After breakfast we played a series of getting to know you games and then learnt about the format of an SRC meeting. We established some rules and procedures that we will use to help us function successfully as a group.
We also played cooperative games that helped us to focus on the importance of working together and contributing as members of our newly formed SRC.
We learnt that to work successfully as a group each member needs to know:
• what he/she can do to help;
• what other members can contribute;
• how to help other members; and
• how to accept help from them.
We completed the session by looking at what our 2013 student survey revealed. The students thought that a school disco, school fete and some lunch times sporting sessions could be possible projects for 2014.
