St Ursula’s College Captain Amy McKee is enjoying a year of action, of being bold and daring.

“The College Student Representative Council (SRC) has introduced a campaign called Be bold which has been very successful in just a few weeks,” Amy said. “The idea is to encourage students to step outside their comfort zones and try new things while remaining true to their authentic selves.” Amy is relishing the feeling of empowerment that comes with the leadership role. “Seeing what needs to be done around the school and having a voice to make the right changes is amazing and empowering,” she said.

“We have introduced Move it Monday which gets students together and dancing in the lunch hour. This is great for fitness but it also gets the girls mixing which is good for students who like to make friends. We also introduced Whopper Wednesday which is all about team games on the front lawn at lunchtime. Again, it’s a way to get students moving and mixing in a fun team spirited way.” Amy loves the community service focus of St Ursula’s College and has taken part in several programs including an immersion at Santa Teresa Mission in the Northern Territory. She is hoping to pursue a career in medicine or public health.
