More leaders for Monto State School

ADDITIONAL leadership positions have been introduced at Monto State Primary School ahead of next year as students are encouraged to support each other and live their school mantra daily - 'Every day is a good day at Monto State School'.

Teaching principal Kirsty Hay said the new leaderships positions included a coding club captain, a fundraising captain, two captains for wellbeing, and two captains for 'Green Thumbs'.

She said all students in Year 6 were keen to be able to contribute to their school and support others at the school.

The school, which has 124 students, also began a Junior Judges Cattle Team this year to teach the children about prime and stud cattle judging at the local shows.

"For a lot of our students that's where their interest is and by giving them more opportunities at a younger age, we can help them decide if that's a career for them, and it better equips them as well,” Ms Hay said.

"I thoroughly enjoy working with the kids here. I enjoy seeing success with students and seeing them progressing throughout the year and moving into the high school and becoming independent learners and part of the community.”

She said she enjoyed working with the families and the child as part of a "team approach”.

"I think we're able to communicate well with the parents of our students which makes parents more aware and able to support the students, which helps the students learn, and that is our main goal,” Ms Hay said.
