2013 College Captains
As College Captains, Emily McIntyre and Austin Wenke, we would like to welcome you back to 2013, a year which promises to provide another absolutely incredible journey for St Andrew’s Anglican College. We have already had a very busy start to the year with numerous events throughout the College. Firstly, we would like to thank and congratulate all of those students who have participated in swimming carnivals over the past few weeks. Not only have we seen some stunning performances by our talented swimmers, but also house and school spirit shining through and creating that great St Andrew’s culture and atmosphere that we love!
Many other activities and competitions are also up and running from volleyball, soccer, rugby, netball, tennis, surfing, basketball and running club, to the fantastic music ensembles, drama clubs, and of course Mrs Baird’s ukulele club. Our music ensembles have been hard at work, beginning with a fabulous two day workshop to hone their skills and prepare for performances in the coming year. We look forward to enjoying some wonderful performances from our music students throughout the year!
Community involvement is also well under way with two teams of both staff and students participating in the ‘Battle Against Ovarian Cancer’, a beach volleyball fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer research. Unfortunately our annual fun run had to be postponed due to the severe weather, however it will be held on the 15th March. We ask everyone to try and support the fun run to raise as much money as possible to help those affected by the recent floods and fires around Australia.
The team of prefects have been hard at work since the start of the school year attending a leadership day, planning and organising events for the year. We have already run a successful Valentine’s Day rose sale which also raised funds for flood victims. We have many other events planned for the year ahead, including a possible world record attempt, the Year 12 formal, our annual Foundation Day, ‘Rock Off’, and several other House and College events.
As always we will also be looking forward to the Breast Cancer Breakfast Fun Run, Kokoda Challenge, Noosa Winter Festival of Sport, Nude Food Day, Sounds of Celebration and the much anticipated primary school musical.
All students are encouraged to participate in as many events as possible and become involved in the amazing St Andrew’s community. We can both speak from experience, that being involved in the College culture is invaluable and provides many opportunities for students to grow and develop not only their skills but as a person.We cannot wait to get to know as many of you as possible in the coming year. Please don’t hesitate to come and say hello, ask for help or give any suggestions. All ideas are welcome! We hope that this year is the best yet for St Andrew’s and that it brings many successes and learning experiences for all.
College Captains for 2013,
Emily and Austin.
