Leadership is about service, and in serving others, leaders initiate new opportunities and respond to the needs of their community. Along with staff, student leaders at Camberwell Girls have a responsibility to uphold and support our school culture as they embody our values of integrity, commitment, respect, hope and courage to honour our work together in enabling members our community to flourish.
This week at our final assembly with Year 12 students and at Presentation Evening we announced our 2024 School Captains. I am delighted to announce to our broader school community that our 2024 School Captain is Emily Price and our Vice Captains are Sara Rowland and Jessica Terlikar. Emily is currently a House Sport Captain and her co-curricular interests are represented in the areas of sport, House programs, music and service. Sara has been a House Drama Captain this year and her co-curricular interests are represented in the areas of debating and public speaking, House programs, sport, music and drama. Similarly, Jessica has been a House Drama Captain and her co-curricular interests are represented in the areas of House, drama and sport.
We warmly congratulate Emily, Sara and Jessica and know that they will be inspiring role models and leaders for their team of captains and students alike. Ms Woolcock and I look forward to working closely with them in the coming year.
We also took the opportunity to thank our 2023 School Captains, Amy Dingle, Scarlett Giang and Tara Rastogi for their outstanding service as student leaders. Throughout their tenure they demonstrated great initiative and respect as they undertook their responsibilities and supported others.
Amy, Scarlett and Tara inspired their team of Captains to fulfill their roles with enthusiasm and diligence as they facilitated many community-building initiatives including the Week of Women program, WeAreCGGS Captains Wellness Tips, Galentines Gala, Soul Siblings Program, Mario Kart competition, Bathroom Breaks initiative and activities to understand the importance of referendums, with a focus on the current Voice referendum. Morning greetings at the gates by all of our Captains were greatly appreciated by students and staff as were their presentations at Assemblies and formal events.
On behalf of the CGGS community I would again like to thank Amy, Scarlett and Tara for their dedicated service this year.
In celebrating our 2024 School Captains, it is important to remember that each one of us has the potential to lead and make a difference that positively impacts our school and others. As staff, we always enjoy opportunities to support students in these endeavours.
With best wishes,
