Congratulations to twenty-five of Caloundra Primary's finest. On Friday the 14th of February Caloundra Primary stopped to present leadership badges to the largest group of student leaders in the schools 100+ year history.
2014 is the first time that not only Year sevens become captains but Year six's as well. The reason is simple, this is the last year that Year seven students will be part of Primary schooling in Queensland. Next year the Year sixes will be the oldest students and the Year sevens will be off, joining the Year eight's at high school.
Councillor Tim Dwyer was again on hand to present the students with their badges, reminding students of who has come before them and who will come after.
He told students that he had come before them at Caloundra Primary way back in the 1970's and that his son James who has started grade one this year will finish his schooling at Caloundra Primary after them.
Caloundra Primary use to be the largest school in Caloundra, having over 1200 students back in the day. The school now has 447 privileged students who get to learn in fully re-furbished large classrooms and play on over seven hectares of lush playgrounds. Keep it quiet though, we don't want to end up being 1200 again and all squashed up. We enjoy the space.
