Leadership Ceremony

Principals, student leaders and their parents from across the Keira Community of Schools participated in an outstanding leadership ceremony on Tuesday Feb 27.

Student leaders from each of our public schools were introduced to the audience and interviewed by one of Keira's captains.

 

School Swimming Carnival

 

After an exciting day of competition, Acacia house, with 999 points, triumphed narrowly over Waratah house with 993 points. Banksia swam in third with 875 points followed by Boronia with 830 points. This was one of the closest carnivals in many years and, most notably, the first time Acacia has won the school swimming carnival since 1995.

 

 

In a traditional event prior to the carnival, students from each house elected their house captains for the year. These student leaders are:
