March 6, 2020
Kingaroy State High School’s sports auditorium was filled to overflowing on Monday for the school’s annual Student Investiture ceremony.
Proud parents lined the walls to watch the presentation ceremonies as well enjoy performances by the Symphonic Band and Vocal Group.
Principal Ashley Roediger said it was daunting to see the increase in enrolment this year.
There were 320 new students – including 216 Year 7s – at the school, taking the total enrolment to 1180.
There were also 14 new staff members.
He said the school leaders in 2020 were an “exceptional” group of young men and women and he expected a great future for them.
“There are many, many cases of past students who have gone on to achieve great things,” he said.
The special guest speaker at the Investiture ceremony was Cr Danita Potter, a former student at the school.
Her topic was leadership … and the many different styles of leadership.
Cr Potter said there were more than 1100 potential Prime Ministers in the room.
“What matters is that you never stop trying to be a better leader, a better person or a better friend,” she said.
