||2005 School Captains
As School Captains for 2005 we are very proud of the SRC’s achievements.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) were an enthusiastic and dedicated group who undertook projects to make Westfields
Sports an even better environment for all students. The SRC attended memorial ceremonies such as Anzac Day, Remembrance Day,
Battle for Australia Day and the Governor’s leadership day. Community charities received strong support with guidance from
the SRC. These included Jeans for Genes, Stewart House and Legacy. Shave for a Cure was a great success.
The SRC raised funds to purchase two new BBQ’s for school functions, along with outdoor table settings, a new illuminated
sign, a refurbished flag pole and air conditioning for our canteen staff.
The school’s environment was enhanced when the SRC supported National Tree and Clean Up Australia Days.
We thank Westfields Sports for the great opportunities and experiences.
Good luck to the Captains of 2006.
|2004 School Captains |
Adrian Bartolo and Lenda Oshalem
The 2004 SRC began in late 2003 with the school captains Adrian Bartolo and Lenda Oshalem representing the
school at Canley Heights RSL for a Remembrance Day ceremony. Heading into the festive season, the SRC aimed to spread
the joy of Christmas by singing Christmas Carols to the students of Westfields Sports and the very special audience at Nyora
Gardens Nursing Home. This was a prime example of how this year's student body aimed at bringing the local community together,
showing our appreciation for their support.
Celebrations were maintained well into the new year and February's Valentine's Day Rose Sales was a taste of things to come
for the 2004 SRC. By not only exceeding the exceptional amount of money raised in 2003, the SRC flawlessly executed this
wonderful day by bringing together the Westfields Sports family, students and teachers. Recognition should go to Chloe Basan
and Jan Elias, whose outstanding efforts in sales contributed to the successful day.
In April Giulia Fimmano, Brett Morrison Samantha Canhao and Lenda Oshalem once again represented our school in the community
ceremonies for ANZAC Day. Participation in ANZAC ceremonies has been a long standing tradition in Westfields Sports that must
be sustained in future years.

2003 School Captains
Hailed as a great success the 2003 Westfields Sports Student Representative Council (SRC) raised
the standard for future SRC's. The hardworking members of the SRC all contributed to the result,
which outdid previous year' fundraising efforts. By setting their main goal as improving morale
of the Westfields Sports constituents, the SRC was able to make the year a most enjpyable one.
Along with traditional annual events there were other triumphant fundraising events, allowing the
SRC to give back to the school a whole lot more.
The year kicked off with an outstanding effort that would seem a challenge to beat for future SRC
In February the SRC collected orders for roses to be issued on Valentine's Day. When the day came
around all students were more than satisfied with the outcome, a somewhat out of the ordinary
Year 12 leaders of Westfields were invited to a leadership seminar. Lauren Barnes and Spencer
Ferreira represented the SRC at Parliament House where they met the Governor of New South Wales
Marie Bashir Bakar. Lauren and Spencer also met with several members of parliament, receiving advise
and information about how the MPs got to their esteemed positions. The seminar allowed the two to
meet with leaders from other NSW High Schools and discuss their leadership role, duties and future
2002 School Captains
2002 has come and gone, and with it, a critical time in the lives of Year 12 students. During
the past six years, Westfields has nurtured us into becoming young adults and it is now time for
us to fend for ourselves. Leanne and I were both very proud at having the privilege of being
your Captains for the 2002 school year. We aimed to take on the responsibilities and commitments
of such a role by representing, not only the school and its name, but also the people who make
up the school: teachers, students, parents & citizens - in order to retain the school’s
reputation it has come to hav developed from past years.
The year began on a very busy note with the continued construction of the new gymnasium hall and
an enthusiastic SRC. We had the honour of representing Westfields at the 2001 Remembrance Day
Ceremony at Canley Heights RSL Club,
|Patrick Polito & Leanne Chami
and promoting Westfields to Mt Pritchard Public School.
With the help of the other SRC members we undertook various fundraising activities such as the
ever enjoyable Valentines Day rose selling.
We also had great pride in meeting the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Marie Bashir, and school
captains from various regions, where we met potential leaders of tomorrow. We were also given
the opportunity to meet the Federal Opposition Leader, Jenny Macklin and our Federal Member of
Parliament Janice Crosio during their visit to Westfields.
Of our various fundraising for charities, our most memorable fundraising activity would have
been the indoor soccer match we set up between teachers and students to raise money for UNICEF
sports activity boxes for children in third world countries. We were also given the opportunity
to help members of our own community with the invitation by the P & C to be present at their
"Driving with Attitude" night where we were able to gain road skills to help us to become better
Leanne and I would like to give a special thank you to the Student Representative Council who
fulfilled their obligations with the utmost enthusiasm and maturity in looking out for the best
interests of the school, and to Mr Caprarelli who did an
outstanding job as SRC Co-ordinator and
gave us the right guidance to achieve our goals.
We would also like to extend a thank you to the Administration Staff. To Mr Tucker, thank you for
your continued guidance and wisdom, not only for 2002, but for the past six years. The example
which you have set for us along with a sense of pride and hunger to achieve, will benefit us all
in our future endeavours.
On behalf of Year 12, we would like to acknowledge the efforts of our Year Advisor Mr Traslavina
who provided the best for us and kept us on task. Thank you to Miss Taylor Assistant Year
Advisor. Thank you to all teachers and staff for their never ending efforts to provide us with
better opportunities for the future. Finally, Leanne and I would like to thank everyone for
putting their faith in us and allowing us to represent you in the role of Captains for 2002. We
wish the 2003 SRC all the best, as well as next year's Captains all the success in the world.
We hope their reign will be as enjoyable as ours was.
Thank you Westfields

2001 School Captains
2001 found both of us delighted in being elected as school captains, and bewilded by the
responsibility that lay ahead. However, with the constant and diligent assistance of
teachers, students and other members of Westfields, we were able to fulfil our
responsibilities, while simultaneously enjoying our final year at school.
2001 began well with the undertakings of the fundamental stages of the Learnscape project
that will improve the various gardens around Westfields. The performing arts building
was officially opened by the minister for Education, John Aquilina, with Senator Marise
Payne, the Honourable Janice Crosio MBE.MP and Joseph Tripodi MP, in attendance.
We also had great pride in meeting the governor of NSW, Her Excellency Marie Bashir,
and school captains from various regions, in which we extended our skills as leaders of tomorrow.
We represented Westfields in attending the launch of the Gatedways program, with NSW Premier
Bob Carr, and other dignitaries - all the while gaining insight into how to better the future
of our school.
It was an honour to represent our school at special events such as Anzac Day.
We both extend a thank thank you to the Students Representative Council for supporting us as
captains. In particular our appreciation goes to Ms Longo and Mr Kumar who fearlessly stepped
into the role of SRC advisors/coordinators. We give further thanks to excutive staff for
assisting with our first role as student leaders.
Lastly, we would like to wish the 2002 SRC all the best, and hope the captains' reign cas be as enjoyable as ours was.
Lana Rowell & Daniel Waetford.
2000 School Captains
The millennium year has been an outstanding success. The last six years have seen Year 12 as a
group and as individuals grow into mature and aspiring young adults. We credit this process in
part to the wonderful school we have all come to cherish and respect.
Krystle and I have enjoyed the role of Captains and the esteem it brings with it. The SRC has
provided us with the avenue of achieving many of our goals. The most exciting achievement was
the re-establishment of the learnscape project which has been the landscaping of the bus bay
area out the front of the school.
|Krystal Kovacs & Jason Lay
We are proud to present to this school a lasting
legacy of what the SRC encompasses i.e. dedication and service to our peers.
To Mr Tucker, thank you for your exemplary leadership over the past six years. We thank you
for instilling in us a sence of pride, courage and determination in our futureb On behalf of
Year 12 in the Olympic Year, we would like to thank the executive staff, Mr Newell, Ms Longo,
Mr Kumar & Mr Bleven for the opportunities that they have presented to us. Without them the year
would not have been the same, nor would it have been as eventful as it was.
In conclusion, Krystle and myself would like to thank everyone for entrusting us with the role
of captaincy and hope that we have fulfilled the role with honour and have achieved the goals
we had set out to achieve.
