My name is Maria Kypreos but I prefer to be called Kyps. I am currently a Year 12 student at Kormilda College and the female Djarrak house captain alongside Ryan Swart. I am half Indigenous and half Greek and I have two older siblings. I am a Contemporary and Hip Hop dancer. My goal for this year will be to pass through Year 12 quickly in order to pursue my performing arts career.
My name is Ryan Swart and I am the Djarrak House Captain for 2016. I was born in Darwin and have been at Kormilda College since Year 7. I have a few hobbies but I am mainly interested in sport including hockey, soccer and Aussie Rules. I am currently completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) at Kormilda, although I am not sure as of yet what I wish to do in the future. Of course I would like to lead the Mighty Seagulls to victory in 2016, though I would also like to make the College community a better place for all.
This semester, Djarrak is raising funds for The Leukaemia Foundation, Australia's peak body for blood cancer, funding research and providing free services to support people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders, and their families.
for the Leukaemia Foundation! The Djarrak House Captains, Ryan Swart and Maria Kypreos have been instrumental in this amazing achievement, organizing and running a Bucket Lunch fundraiser, and in their role in The World’s Greatest Shave event at Kormilda College held 9 March 2016.
Special mention must be given to two Year 9 Djarrak students, Joel Keith and Matisse Gabbert, who individually raised over $1,000 each. An incredible effort and a demonstration of their bravery as they both cut off their lustrous locks for charity.
Djarrak began the day strongly with their new House Chant and continued with a solid display of determination and grit, finishing a close second at the end of the day. It was fantastic to see all the yellow on faces, in hair and draped around the College.
