At St. Columba’s College, we firmly believe that leaders are not born – they become leaders through experience and opportunity. Young people need genuine opportunities to test drive what it feels like to be in the leader’s seat.

Earlier this term, Year 7 to 9 students were asked the question – would you like to trade your classroom for the Principal’s office as part of our ‘Student Principal for a Day’ event? Students in Years 7 to 9 have been given the opportunity to shadow our Principal, Ms Grima, for a day to see firsthand what her role, in leading our College community, entails. It will also be an opportunity to provide insights and advice to the Principal.

Students were required to submit an application to help us determine our 2020 Student Principal for a Day.

We are really proud and excited to advise that Monique Davood, a Year 9 student has been selected as the successful applicant. She will be working alongside Ms Grima on Friday 20 November. Congratulations to Monique and we look forward to hearing about her experiences in the next issue of Iona.
