Victoria Ellis and Brandon Joynson
19th November 2020
Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—I'd like to congratulate Toronto High School's Victoria Ellis and Brandon Joynson on their recent election as the school's 2021 School Captains. Victoria is widely respected by the student body and will no doubt prove to be an effective leader. She has participated in school service from a young age by making morning announcements on roll call since Year 8 and mentoring Year 7 through the Peer Support program whilst in Year 10. Brandon is already a strong leader and is well liked by his peers who describe him as determined, polite and affable with a great sense of humour. He has always had an excellent academic record and was accelerated in his Biology course, completing his Preliminary and HSC course in this subject one year earlier than his peers. Young people who take on such responsibility are very likely to go on and be leaders in other ways, whether it's within their chosen profession, perhaps in public life, business or the public service. I believe we will see great things from Victoria and Brandon in the future and I wish them well.
