2018 School Captains Address
As this year’s School Captains, we are honoured and privileged to be a part of the student leadership team during the year of the School’s centenary celebrations. We are grateful for this opportunity and seek to fulfil our duty by giving back to the community that has helped shape us during our school journey. We look forward to 2018 with great anticipation, embracing the responsibility of our role.
As we look toward the last year of our high school journey, we hope to model a strong desire for learning in younger students whilst encouraging students to rejoice in their youth, to embrace their strengths and to truly believe the sky is the limit.
Newcastle Grammar School’s history is rich with leaders who have left an inspiring and lasting legacy. We hope to continue this tradition to the best of our ability.
With 2018, being Newcastle Grammar School’s Centenary year, it holds many challenges and opportunities for all. Whether you are a new student starting at the school, moving into another grade or even from Park Campus up to the Hill Campus, moving from Year 6 into Year 7 or into the Senior School years, there will be exciting and rewarding challenges for everyone both individually and collectively. We have all of these momentous memories and now we, along with our Year 12 cohort, have all of the excitement and nerves associated with our final year at school. This year, we seek to inspire each and every student to embrace all opportunities with open minds. As the future generation, we hope to encourage others to continue to create their own unique path by utilising the resources that Newcastle Grammar School offers each and every one of us. We hope that everyone has had time to re-charge during the Christmas and New Year break so that as we enter 2018 we hit the ground running and are ready to make the most out of what is surely going to be a memorable year.
It is our hope that with everything that unfolds it will be a positive, collaborative, eventful and exciting year for everyone to enjoy creating the next chapter of Newcastle Grammar School’s unique history.
