Principal for a day 2016 - Jack Mear – R 10
Being principal for a day is an extremely special day for one lucky child. My parents bid for me to become principal for the day at last years St Mary’s School quiz night and they won!
My amazing day started by traveling to Saint Mary’s Church in Mr Fuller’s car for our special school mass and I was able to greet parents as they entered the church, right next to Mr Fuller. When we got back to school, I was then invited to the staff room to have morning tea with the teachers. This was great as I got to have my favourite – a mince savoury.
I then showed two new families around our school with Mr Fuller. I really enjoyed this as I could tell these families how amazing our school is, especially my classroom. Then we went to Macdonald’s for a very yummy lunch.
At assembly at the end of the day, I handed out the principal’s awards to children in our school, it was great because one of my best buddies got a principals award that day as well as my sister. It was an amazing day I will never forget.
Deputy Principal for a day 2016 - Mikayla R9
In 2016, I had an amazing fun opportunity to spend the day with our deputy principal, Mrs MacKinnon. At the PTA Quiz Night, Mum and Dad bid on “Deputy Principal for the Day” and they won! I was unsure of when I was going to be Deputy Principal but one morning before assembly Mrs Mackinnon came into my classroom and she tells me that I am being Deputy Principal today. I followed her into her office, and she told me that we were teaching Room 5 and I was going to help! While she was looking after the students, I was preparing what I was going to say at the assembly, I was the first person to speak out of all of us…….. Wow I was so nervous.
The day of being Deputy Principal was so great, I got to eat morning tea with the teachers in the staff room. They had sausage rolls for morning tea – my favourite! I got to chat to some of the teachers in the staff room which was kind of weird but really fun! As it was Bike Safety week Mrs MacKinnon allowed me to join back with my class and do Bike safety At lunch time Jack (Principal of the day) and I were taken to McDonalds for lunch with Mrs MacKinnon and Mr Fuller! It was great to sit and chat with them!
Assembly was so much fun, I got to help Mrs MacKinnon give out Christ Like certificates and Jack helped Mr Fuller.
I can totally recommend becoming Deputy Principal of the day, it’s so much fun and you get to see all the things the Principal and Deputy Principal do!
