On Monday 16 October, the College held its annual Investiture Assembly to thank the Year 12 student leadership body for their work and to welcome the newest senior leadership team.
The incoming Captains, Kate and Joshua, introduced themselves, touching briefly on their hopes for the College and their commitment to serving our community while the outgoing Captains, Campbell and Elena, spoke about their time in leadership and the lessons they had learned.
The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of the new leadership badges. The outgoing Captains and Prefects presented the incoming leaders with a candle, symbolising the passing of the torch and the continuation of their work. The symbolism of the outgoing Captains and Prefects presenting the incoming leaders with a candle is very powerful. It is a reminder that leadership is a continuum and that the work of one generation of leaders builds on the work of those who came before them.
The Investiture Assembly is an important tradition at the College. It is a time to recognise the outstanding contributions of our student leaders and to welcome the new leadership team.
The College is grateful for the service of all of our student leaders, both past and present. We wish the new leadership team all the best for a successful year.
