Kapunda leaders inducted

KAPUNDA High School’s 2017 student leaders were formally inducted during a special ceremony last Wednesday.

The induction ceremony, held in the school’s gymnasium, saw the school’s newly-elected prefects and student representatives welcomed in front of special guests, families, students and staff.

Prefect mentors Kerensa Greenfield, Andrew Healy and Felyka Leske led the ceremony, which began with the national anthem, performed by year 12 soloist Shannon Skinner.

Principal Kristen Masters welcomed guests to the ceremony and spoke of the importance and responsibility of the role of prefects and SRC members.

She also inspired the student leaders to make their mark on Kapunda High and make changes that will be beneficial for years to come.

Guest speaker, 2007 Head Prefect, Samuel Wright reflected on how his time in SRC taught him valuable skills, such as teamwork, organisation and leadership, which he was able to apply during university and during his successful career as an event organiser.

Head prefects Callum Fox and Sharna Grant led the group in the ‘oath of office’, which saw members vow to take responsibility for student matters, including the organisation of student activities and helping with student welfare.

Meanwhile, guests enjoyed a performance by the school’s concert band, and a morning tea prepared by a year 11 food and hospitality class following the ceremony.
