Five new school leaders inducted at school ceremony


Amiens State School inaugurated our 2019 Student Leaders on Assembly on Monday 11th February.  Local Councillors, community members, family and friends attended.  We had a magnificent turn out on the day, with students firstly making together their pledge as Student Leaders, then being presented with certificates and badges.  Mrs Colleen Willis, a strong supporter of the school and well-known and respected local identity, presented certificates and Mr Alex Harslett presented badges.  Mrs Willis gave some great words of encouragement to the student leaders and wise words on being a leader while Mr Harslett gave individual words of inspiration and support.

Our 2019 student leadership team is:

School Leaders                      Jade and Kodi

Technology Leader                 Isaac

Gemini Sports Captains          Jacob

Apollo Sports Captains           Oscar

The morning celebration concluded with the Student Leaders hosting a morning tea for the invited guests.  It was a very special moment for our leaders and school captains.

Thanks to all of the invited guests, community and parents who attended and supported our students. 

At Amiens, our focus for 2019, beyond of course the important key learning areas of literacy and numeracy, is in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM).  As technology itself in now far from a trend, having become an integral part of Australian primary classrooms, we are engaged with the “bigger picture” questions of how it will evolve this year and how we can ensure that digital technology continues to make  a positive contribution to our classrooms.  We know that there are new innovations that are getting started this year, ready to wow us in the future.  Our task as educators, and one we take very seriously at Amiens State School, is to not only keep up with the new teaching methods, but to exploit them to our and our students’ advantage.  Will we have “virtual classrooms” in the future?  What is the future of artificial intelligence? How will the development of “chat bot” software assist students with research?  We focus on teaching our students to be life-long learners, ready to engage with these technologies as well as being problem-solvers to best put them to use in their familiar environment.
