Two students originally from Lock have been elected as St Joseph's School boarding house captains for 2018.
This January the St Joseph’s School boarding house welcomed 19 students from across the Eyre Peninsula and West Coast of South Australia, as well as Roxby Downs and Andamooka.
The students range from year 9 to Year 12, and include seven new students to the community this year.
The boarding students and staff have elected two boarding captains to represent the boarding house community.
Their roles include liaising between boarding staff and students, representing the boarding house at school and community functions and fostering an environment of inclusion, welcome and positivity at the boarding house.
We are proud to congratulate Harrison Wright (of Lock) and Amber Tully (Elliston, previously Lock) on being elected as the 2018 Boarding House Captains.
Amber said being a boarding house captain meant “being a responsible leader that people will look up to in the coming year and being helpful if other boarders require help”.
Harrison hopes to “build a welcoming and pleasant environment in the boarding house and will enjoy having the opportunity to develop my leadership skills.”
The boarding and school staff look forward to working with Amber and Harrison in their role as captains.
