CEP Digital Media Festival

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported our school at this great event last night! Well done to the Sapphires who had their last aerobics performance of the year and to our Bandlink students who also did a terrific job. It was an absolute treat to watch MC Squared on the big screen! Congratulations to Ember, Eleanor, Indra and Elsie for their excellent work. If you missed it, you can watch it below and also check out some photos from the evening.

Student Leaders 2017

Well done to all of our Year 5 students who took part in our leadership program over the past 2 weeks. Students learnt about and discussed the skills, qualities and values of being a leader, listened to a talk from our current school captain, Vincent, about his experience as a school leader and also spoke with Mr Selwood about the roles and responsibilities of leadership. It was wonderful to see so many students put themselves forward and share their applications for a leadership position. After our session yesterday, all Year 5 students took part in a peer vote for their top 3  male and female leaders.

Congratulations to Noah, Oscar, Finlay, Ember, Lucy and Eleanor! In 2 weeks, these students will present their captaincy speeches to K-5 ready for a whole school vote. We wish them the very best and look forward to their leadership journey!
