At our K-6 assembly on Thursday July 4, we had the official induction of our year 5 Play Leaders and year 2 Book Bees for 2019.
The Play Leaders program has been running at our school since 2006. It provides the opportunity for our year 5 students to take on a leadership role on the playgrund. They manage and distribute sporting equipment to the younger students and organise and run games. Each year, interested year 5 students partake in training, and those who demonstrate suitable leadership qualities are selected as Play Leaders.
The Book Bees have been assisting with the running of the Hilltop Road Book Hive since its inception in 2015. The Book Hive was created to provide our students and community members the opportunity to enjoy books on the playground. The Book Bees are selected from year 2 to manage the Book Hive and share the books with younger students on the playground.
The Play Leaders receive red hats and badges, while the Book Bees receive yellow hats bearing the Book Hive logo, to make them easily recognisable on the playground. Our students were very proud to be inducted as playground leaders.
