4. If you were the principal what would you introduce?
Jesse Evans, head prefect:
- Acitivites involving other school such as sporting, academic or even just recreational.
- More guest speakers to speak to the school
- More opportunities to get involved in the local communities.
Lachlan Hallab, college captain:
- on a Thursday, we currently have 3 periods of class then 3 periods of sport. Instead of 3 periods of class I would introduce activities where the students could give back to the community (supervised by teachers) but cleaning up the environment, social justice initiatives such as the red shield appeal and so forth.
George Tannous, VC:
- community involvement awards that recognized individuals that are not normally recognized by other major awards.
- sign in toilet sheets
- spring loaded toilet seats that only remain down when a force is applied on top of it. This prevents toilet seats being urinated on which is a large problem within schools.
