The Blazer Exchange is a special day for both the present executive and the newly elected executive. For one group, it’s the official end to their posts, and for the other, it’s just the beginning.
This assembly is an opportunity for the present executive to say thank you and goodbye to the school community, and for us to acknowledge them for their many, many contributions to our school.
The graduating Student Executive thanked their colleagues, the student body, and their teacher sponsors for all of the support they were given throughout the year. A little advice is always imparted to the incoming Exec (this year it culminated in a 5 minute pun), and gifts and Blazers were exchanged to signify the passing of the leadership torch.
Teachers, who gave their time to work with and mentor the executive subgroups, were also thanked (Mr. Britt from the Class Presidents, Ms. Lee from the House Captains, Ms. Kaddage from the Community Service Captains, and Ms. Boteju from the Head and Vice Head Girls for her guidance of the entire team). There were a few tears, but as per usual, Ms. Ruddy was there with a quick Kleenex.
