Premiers and chief ministers of the Australian states and territories

The premiers and chief ministers of the Australian states and territories are the heads of the executive governments in the six states and two self-governing territories of the Commonwealth of Australia. They perform the same function at the state and territory level as the Prime Minister of Australia performs at the national level; the territory equivalents to the premiers are the chief ministers of the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory. The Queen of Australia and the state governors are the formal repositories of executive power; each of the Australian states is governed under the Westminster system of parliamentary government. Each state has an elected legislature. Following a General Election, the State Governor appoints as Premier the Member of the lower house of the State legislature who can command a simple majority of votes on the floor of the house; the Governor in practice acts only on the advice of the Premier. The Premier must resign his or her commission to the Governor if he or she loses the confidence of the Legislative Assembly, either because his or her party is defeated at a General Election or because he or she loses a vote of confidence in the house..

The Australian states were founded as British colonies, executive power was held by a Governor appointed by the British Government. From the 1820s the power of the Governors was transferred to legislative bodies, at first appointed partly elected, fully elected. Victoria gained full responsible parliamentary government in 1855, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania in 1856, Queensland in 1859 and Western Australia in 1890; until the rise of the Australian Labor Party in the 1890s, the Australian colonies did not have formal party systems, although many colonial politicians called themselves Liberals or Conservatives. Ministries were formed on the basis of personal or factional loyalties, rose and fell with great frequency as loyalties changed. Colonial politics were regarded as parochial and cynical, in many cases they were. Victorian Premier James Munro, for example, fled the colony to escape his creditors in 1890, Queensland Premier Sir Thomas McIlwraith was notoriously corrupt; the rise of Labor forced the colonies to move towards a two-party system of Labor versus non-Labor, although state politics remained more personalised and less ideological than national politics for many years.

The first minority Labor government was formed by Anderson Dawson in Queensland in 1899, the first majority Labor government was led by James McGowen in New South Wales in 1910. Since about 1910 state politics have followed much the same party pattern as Australian national politics. Since 1952, every premier of every state has been a member of the Australian Labor Party, the Liberal Party of Australia, or the National Party of Australia. Although the legislative powers of the states are defined in the Constitution, the real power of the Australian Premiers has been declining ever since Federation in 1901, as the power and responsibility of the national government has expanded at the expense of the states; the most important transfer of power came in 1943, when in the interests of national unity during World War II the states gave up their power to levy their own income taxes to the Commonwealth. Since the states' finances have been controlled by the Commonwealth. For many decades, the Premiers met with the Prime Minister at Premiers' Conferences.

Since 1992, such meetings occur as the Council of Australian Governments, which includes the Chief Ministers of the territories and a representative of local government. On 21 July 2006, South Australian Premier Mike Rann was appointed Chairman of a new Council for the Australian Federation, a council which aims to improve state-federal ties. With the exception of South Australia, every state and territory of Australia has had a female head of government, all but two of whom have represented the Australian Labor Party, they are: Western Australia: Carmen Lawrence 1990–1993 Victoria: Joan Kirner 1990–1992 Queensland: Anna Bligh 2007–2012, Annastacia Palaszczuk 2015–present New South Wales: Kristina Keneally 2009–2011, Gladys Berejiklian 2017–present Tasmania: Lara Giddings 2011–2014 Australian Capital Territory: Rosemary Follett 1989, 1991–1995, Kate Carnell 1995–2000, Katy Gallagher 2011–2014 Northern Territory: Clare Martin 2001–2007Of the state leaders, all but Palaszczuk succeeded male Premiers of their own party who had resigned mid-term.

The governments led by Lawrence, Kirner and Giddings were defeated at the subsequent elections. Anna Bligh, Annastacia Palaszczuk and Gladys Berejiklian are the only women who have received a popular mandate as Premier of an Australian state. Palaszczuk is the first woman to have led a party from Opposition to Government. Women have be

St Stithians College

St Stithians College is a private Methodist Parochial school situated on the border of Randburg and Sandton, South Africa. It follows a co-ordinate educational model within a village of schools consisting of boys' and girls' colleges, boys' and girls' preparatory schools, a junior preparatory, it is built on one of the largest school campuses in the country. As a Methodist school, it has ties to Kearsney College, Epworth High School, Penryn College and Kingswood College; the school is a member of Round Square, an association of global independent schools known for their academics, culture and innovation. The Boys' and the Girls' Colleges are members of the Round Square Conference of Schools. St Stithians College was listed as the top performing independent school in South Africa in 2017 by Business Tech. St Stithians College is the host of the annual Saints Sports Festival, the largest and longest continuous school sports festival in the world; the 2017 edition witnessed over 1400 participants in 8 fields of sport, 200 fixtures and over 50000 spectators.

The idea of setting up a Methodist school in Johannesburg came to Gilbert Tucker, who wanted to base it on the pattern of his old school, Kingswood College in Grahamstown. The Methodist accountant did not have the money so he turned to people who would be interested in financing it, he met two Cornishmen, both born in 1859, Albert Collins and William Mountstephens, who were Methodists and promising new businessmen who had started to make a name for themselves in their new country. Collins, who never married, died first and this led to the creation of the Trust for building the Methodist school Tucker had dreamt of; the Trust was formally opened in April 1941 and, at Mountstephens' suggestion, was named after Collins' birthplace, Stithians, a village in Cornwall. These trustees were D. F. Corlett, C. H. Leake, J. B. Webb and G. K. Tucker; the Trust was able to purchase a piece of land, part of the farm Driefontein for an amount of £8713 in 1943 but nothing further was achieved until after the War. At first it was thought that building costs might drop and so the trustees waited until it became obvious that prices would not drop and so the decision to build was made in 1951.

Mountstephens lived to see the land purchased, but not the school built. The school was to have been a secondary school only and at first, the debate on co-education was open. Circumstances were to make decisions for the Trustees: the area was new and remote; the first classes began on 28 January 1953, with Grades 1 and 2, 8 and 9. On 3 February 1953 there was a formal opening ceremony. W. G. A. Mears of Rondebosch Boys High School, was the first headmaster, taught English, Latin and Geography to the high school classes, with Mr E. M. Harris teaching Maths and Scripture, Mr Minnaar teaching Afrikaans. In the second year classes in the school ran from Grade 1 to Grade 10, in 1956 the first group wrote the matriculation examination; as the school grew, Wally Mears, the headmaster, did less teaching, became more an administrator. The school's hall is named for him. St Stithians Girls College was opened in 1995 to form the coordinate module with the Boys College; the founding headmistress was Mrs Anne Van Zyl.

The initial opening classes were grade 0 - 3, to expand to include all the grades up to and including grade 11 with the first grade 12 class being inducted in 1997. The Girls College was named the St Stithians Girls Collegiate, which would subsequently be changed when expanded. During 1994 the first classes would be held on the boys'side of the rugby field' using available infrastructure; as a part of the co-ordination module girls and boys school have mixed classes in Drama, isiZulu, Afrikaans and Computer Science. In 1996 the Collegiate would move across the field to newly developed complete school; the College facilities was further developed to include a large library, several computer rooms, a'tuck shop' and gymnasium as well as a lecture theatre - used for assemblies and individual class plays. The first Matriculents of the college would sit their exams 1997. In 1999 the founding houses of the Girls College were chosen, they were all named after towns within Cornwall. The girls were to pick a name out of a hat to randomly divide the grades into the four houses.

The names of the houses are Cambourne, Kenwyn and Trewen respectively. These individual houses compete in various cultural and sporting house competitions as well as part take in different philanthropic endeavours; the uniform has changed over the years, with the girls wearing white floral dresses - which the girls prep still use as a summer uniform - to a Blue and red checked skirt and white blouse. The first top was a white golf shirt but this was changed to a white blouse in 2008; the Badge is based on the coat of arms of the Duke of Cornwall, a Crusader shield on which are displayed 15 golden Bezants in the shape of a triangle with the motto'One and All'. The story of the 15 bezants occurs during the Crusades when the Duke of Cornwall was captured by the Saracens. A ransom of 15 bezants was set up. All the people of Cornwall contributed to raise the money for the ransom, it was paid and the Duke was set free. The inhabitants had all helped together All to raise the money -- hence the motto.

The founders decided. It was then
