3. Why do you think being a school leader is important?

Joseph Nasr, environmental leader: It’s important because you are looking after a certain area. Mine is the environment so I make sure the school is clean and welcoming. 

Kathryn White, social justice leader: Because all the kids that get chosen are able to make the most of their last year by helping the younger kids. 

Adrian Bechara, positive behavior learning leader: I think it’s important because if there were no school leaders no one would know what to do. We help out with the rules. We lead by example. 

Riley Warner, social justice leader:  Not so much to boss people around but to make the school a better place.

Patrick Nasr, liturgy leader: I believe it’s important to lead by example. The younger kids see you as a brilliant role model. 

Joshua Wehbe, liturgy leader: If there were no leaders the younger students wouldn't have anyone to look up to.

Bridie Croxford, positive behavior for learning leader: Because you're the role model for the younger students and we are able to find fun ways to teach them the rules of the school. 

Eilish Murphy, environmental leader: School leaders are important because our job is to help the younger students apply what we learn to everyday life. 

Nicholas Nikolaidis, SRC leader: Because we lead and guide everyone. Without student leaders the school wouldn't work as well. 

Christine Davies, library leader: As a library leader its our job to create and help judge competitions. Also to help people in the library. 

Marko Wong, library leader: Because without the school leaders the students wouldn't have a voice.
