2018-2019 Grade 8 House Captains and Class Leaders

Leadership is an opportunity and a responsibility that many of our students are nurtured to develop in or outside of the class.  Our approach is to provide as many opportunities as possible, informal or formal. In Grade 8, house captains and class leaders are chosen in April, while the Grade 6 and 7 class leaders are chosen in September. This year, we had a wealth of qualified applicants that took the courage to campaign and apply. It is lovely to see that our ‘citizens of the world’ (school mission) are taking interest in student government.

The House Captain candidates were chosen based on the quality of their application, an interview and their spirit at the House Lunch.

Grade 8 House Captains

Champlain - Julia Hardy
Johnson - Logan Daniels

Simcoe - Somerset Folk

Grade 8 Classroom Leaders

Shoshana Iny
Saskia Diplock
Charlie Kernaghan

The Grade 8 Leaders were chosen based on their application, speech and student vote.

I would like to thank all of the candidates who took a risk and applied. This year was extremely difficult as there were so many fantastic applicants.

Student Leadership Coordinator, Katie McParlan
