Will Garske, Captain
“My position as School Captain involves setting a good example for the younger years. It also involves me doing school tours and talking in assembly.
I’ve always hoped to one day become a School Captain. I just love the fact that you can run a club and talk in assembly and just lead by example.
Some of my goals for 2024 are to improve in my public speaking ability and set a great example for all the students.”
Ben Hunt, Vice-Captain
“Being Vice-Captain involves taking interested families on school tours or Explore Kindy Mornings and helping lead assemblies. I’m also a person who other students can come to for help and advice if they can’t find a teacher.
I try my hardest to live up to the school values of gratitude, respect, courage, compassion and commitment. I thought being Vice-Captain would be a good opportunity to grow my leadership skills, and to learn and work alongside our great teachers and Principals. ”
Hallie Owers, Captain
“Being School Captain involves many assemblies and welcoming parents and students to special events.
I want to demonstrate our school values of compassion, being kind to others, gratitude, being thankful for our amazing school, courage, being brave in public speaking, respect, wearing my school uniform with pride and respecting my teachers and peers in the classroom, and commitment to my position as a school leader.
My goals as a School Captain include improve my public speaking, and be warm-hearted, honest, and confident. I know this is going to take courage and commitment and test my limits because I get a bit of stage fright, and butterflies beforehand.”
Abi Leeming, Vice-Captain
“Vice-Captain must set a good example for all the younger years. It involves leading some assemblies, welcoming new students and parents to the school, and representing the school outside of school hours.
I wanted this position ever since I was in Kindy. The reason why I thought I could do it was because I knew I wanted to help and lead the school. I’ve only been at this school one year. I know how nerve-wracking it is to be the new person at school and I wanted to put myself in a position to help newcomers to the school.”
