Welcome 2016 Captains

A new school year is always an eventful time and adding to the excitement is the announcement of the new School Captains. Following a selection process involving students and staff, Prefects were announced and inducted at the end of last year. These prefects then attended leadership training designed to equip them with all the skills they will need to serve as effective members of the student leadership team. Following this training, the Heads of Campus each selected two students to serve as Captains.

The 2016 Captains are Will and Noura and Tom and Laney.

Will started his journey at Ivanhoe in the Early Learning Centre and has taken full advantage of all that an Ivanhoe Education has to offer. Passionate about the Arts, Will has participated in numerous musicals and is also accomplished at playing the violin and piano. He has also shown an aptitude for leadership becoming a Cadet Unit Officer in 2012. An accomplished orator, Will has also received many awards for debating.

She has a passion for service work and has been involved in many service projects such as The Breakfast Club and Urban Camp.
