Students celebrate Education Week

GYMPIE South State School celebrated Education Week by promoting four students to the position of principal.

To apply for the prestigious position, students had to write a description informing the administration which “You Can Do It!” key a principal would need to use and why.

The four students who received the promotion were Helana Chippindall, Indiana Hehir, Joseph McClintock and Aiden Hinds who would use their Resilience key to be able to “bounce back” when days were tough, Persistence when there was lots to do, Getting Along with students, parents and staff, Confidence to be able to talk at assembly and Organisation to make sure the school ran well.

During the week, the students assisted with assembly, commended the behaviour of fellow students, issued certificates, visited classrooms and wrote articles for the newsletter.
