Hills International College have assigned their leadership team at an assembly held on Friday February 12.
College Captains Emily Cooper and Bailey Maher as well as Primary Captains Georgia Beekman and Taidyn Nardello were inducted.
The prefect team and house captains were also named at the Investiture assembly.
Principal Kevin Lynch said the whole team have great qualities.
“We make sure that it is not a popularity vote,” he said.
“This is an opportunity for these people and its all up to them what they do with it, I tell them that its up to them about what legacy they want to leave.
“This is a journey of leadership and we want to develop their skills.
“I congratulate all of them and make sure they know that this is an opportunity.
“Our college captains also selflessly gave up time in their holidays for a leadership camp where they have created a whole network of like students.”
College captains Emily Cooper and Bailey Maher said they were both nervous but excited to continue on the legacy left behind by last years captains.
Bailey said it was quite daunting to become the face of the school.
“It is a huge learning curve,” he said.
“There’s an amount of confidence that you need.”
Bailey said he hopes to get a lot more confidence and skills out of being captain for 2016.
“You just notice now you have that bit of influence in the school,” he said.
Emily said this year they along with the prefect team hope to implement a school representative council.
“This is a challenging role but it is a really useful opportunity,” she said
“We have worked hard to achieve our roles.”
Emily said she hopes that anyone thinking about running for captain over the next few years puts themselves out there.
“I tend to find I’m looking around more and taking notice about how things are going in the rest of the school,” she said.
“it will be great to have a presence over the whole college.”
Primary captains Georgia Beekman and Taidyn Nardello are very excited to take up the reigns of captains this year.
Taidyn said there were a lot of assemblies to run.
“I want to run a fundraiser this year to help out the farmers in drought,” he said.
Georgia said she hopes to make a difference this year.
“I really want people not to be lonely,” she said.
“I want people to have someone to play with and not be left out.”
