Servant leadership, developing ‘social currency’ through EY8

It is inspiriting to report the passion and commitment being displayed by the Year 8 students while they plan and prepare their EY8 proposals.  The EY8 program provides the chance for our Middle School student leaders to design their own learning project, that will have a direct positive impact upon others, i.e. building our social currency.  This is achieved by understanding Servant Leadership.  During the past two years we have experienced times of isolation and social restriction, so the need for projects like EY8 have never been more important for both the community and our student leaders.  It will be exciting to see these projects come to life in our communities bringing much connection and care.  Thank you to the EY8 mentors who are assisting and guiding our students and their projects.  The presentation of these projects will be in late Term 3.


Thank you for the support with students sitting NAPLAN Assessments over the past two weeks.  For many this is the first NAPLAN Assessment since Year 3 due to recent COVID-19 restrictions.  NAPLAN is one assessment indicator to inform learning and understanding.
