THE past, present and future leaders of Rochester Secondary College put their brains together on Friday.
The annual day saw students from year 10, 11, 12 join forces with RSC alumni and converge on the Rochester Sports Club for a day of workshops and try outs.
SRC facilitator Ruth Borger said they are lucky to have such dedicated past students.
‘‘It is lovely to see our past students come and help out as well as those year 12 students currently in the middle of their exams,’’ she said.
‘‘The day aims to be a try outs day for students wanting a position on the 2018 student representative council.
‘‘Applicants for the roles of president, secretary, treasurer, publicity and events complete a series of games and tasks, designed to help them showcase their teamwork skills and learn about the SRC at the same time.’’
Ms Borger said this year’s applicants were trained by past students Ebony Hooper, Abraham Hooper, Demi Irwin, Kahla Else and year 12 students Jacob Baker, Jack Wickham, Stephanie Else and Genevieve Foott.
‘‘Students tend to respond better to people who have done the jobs they are applying for,’’ she said.
‘‘They also seem to appreciate the effort that these young people are going to on their behalf. After all, most of them have just finished studying for the year or are busy working, so we are honoured that they choose to come back and help out.’’
Judging by the enthusiastic participation on the day, the college has another great crop of future leaders to choose from.
