Wow! Time really flies when you’re having fun. It’s already Week 5 of Term 1 and everything’s in full swing. 2016 is a big year, not just for us Year 12’s, but for all other year levels too. Going up a grade is always big step up and we’re all just settling back into the humdrum of school life. Although starting school again is a little terrifying, it’s also a great opportunity to make new friends. Don’t be afraid to give someone a wave and smile, they’re most likely just as terrified as you are. School can also be a stressful place and sometimes all you need is a friendly smile to turn your day around. So lets embrace the new year together and all the new challenges and experiences with a smile, because tomorrow it might just be you who needs someone to brighten up your day.

The first term of the year has been momentous yet challenging. The leadership team for 2016 has been finalised with three members from each year level elected to be part of the Student Representative Council. This year, brand new additions to the leadership positions include two Year 12 members as a student secretary and treasurer. The Student Representative Council meet every fortnight to discuss issues and plan events. The leadership team also welcomes the eight House Captains who are more determined than ever to lead their House to success.
Kormilda College seeks to inspire its students to be life-long learners, and I hope that everyone in the Kormilda College family is inspired by the extensive amount of learning opportunities and put their best foot forward to gain as much knowledge to enable them to shape the future.
To all my fellow Year 12’s, this year, without a doubt will prove to be the most challenging and the most important year in our lives so far. It is astounding to think that six years ago we became a part of the family and this year will be our last. Although we hope to graduate this year and move onto the next phase of our lives,
I am positive that in our hearts we will always be part of the Kormilda family. I wish you all the best with your studies this year and no matter how difficult it becomes, I am sure there will always be a helping hand available at Kormilda College.
The year ahead is looking bright with many sporting events and activities that are sure to help students build stronger bonds with each other and work together as a team.
