Featured Story

This Friday evening, Bacchus March Grammar Year 10 students will be celebrating the conclusion of their Leadership Program throughout Years 9 and 10 at Moonee Valley Race Course. Students will be presented with a Leadership certificate highlighting their involvement in many differing programs, including the completion of the Duke of Edinburgh Award – Bronze Level, participation in community events and the development of skills associated with a new area of interest.

Throughout Years 9 and 10, all students have been engaged in a dance program, in preparation for the evening. They will present the dance program to their parents as a social component of the celebration of their Leadership certificates.

Currently, the Year 11 students are involved in applying for Prefect, School Captain and Vice-Captain and eventually, Senior House Captain and Vice-Captain positions for 2017. I am very impressed with the level of enthusiasm and healthy competition for leadership positions throughout the Senior School. Staff are looking at ways to support students and offer them the opportunity be involved in leadership within the school. The trend for many years now, has been the increasing difficulty in deciding who should be the School Captain, Vice-Captain or Prefects as there are so many deserved candidates.

After an exhaustive program of, participation in Leadership Day, presentation of speeches, interviews and voting by their peers and staff, a panel of Senior Staff meet to decide who the successful candidates will be. School Colours and the Year 10 Leadership Certificate are two very important key indicators in deciding who will be Prefects and School Captains. The School values highly, involvement in the “life of the School.” Students must be able to demonstrate their willingness to be involved, as well as dedication to their studies. Bacchus Marsh Grammar offers many varied avenues for students to be able to demonstrate their willingness to be involved.

To accommodate the growing number of suitable candidates, Bacchus Marsh Grammar has been able to identify needs within the school ensuring that students may be appointed to a Prefect to oversee the inclusion of students who participate in events and activities and the presentation of information to the student body at assemblies and other forums.

I would like to thank all the students who avail themselves to act as leaders, giving of their time and support to the school.
