On Monday 5th February Redland Bay State School inducted its student leaders at a ceremony held at the school. Dignitaries present included Mr Henry Pike, Federal Member for Bowman, Ms Kim Richards, Member for Redlands, and Mrs Julie Talty, Deputy Mayor and Division 6 Councillor.

The Student Leader induction ceremony recognised and paid tribute to the year six students on their achievement in being selected as 2024 school leaders. Each of these young people went through an extensive process including a written application, panel interview and presentation of a leadership speech, before being voted in by their peers, teaching and non-teaching staff, and the school’s leadership team.

Quandamooka elder, Uncle Raymond Walker, began the ceremony with a Welcome to Country that included staff and students joining in to sing and perform actions to his beautiful song. The ceremony inducted four school captains, nine area prefects and eight sports house prefects.

The parents and carers of each of the 21 students selected were in attendance and invited to the stage to accept the certificate and badge, which they pinned to the shirt of their child. These 21 students make up a group of leaders now referred to as the school’s Student Parliament.

The final level of student leadership celebrated involved all year six students. The ceremony concluded with the Student Parliament and all year six students reciting a pledge to the assembly of students from years three to five, special guests, staff, parents and members of the wider community.
