Captains of cupcakes and comedy

CONTINUING our rolling coverage of all the school captains in the North Burnett for 2019, we ask Mount Perry State School's two Year 6 leaders what they hope to achieve this year.

What changes would you like to help introduce to your school this year?

Joe Jensen: I don't plan to make any changes to my school this year because I believe it's already a great school.

Jayda Cleary: When I am school captain this year I will try my very hardest to do great things that make the school a better place for kids to learn and have fun at the same time while encouraging kids to tidy up the school. The school leaders can make and sell cupcakes once a term. This money can go towards the chaplains as a token of our appreciation for their help.

What do you want to do when you're older?

Joe: When I'm older I would like to be an actor or a comedian because I think it would be an exciting job to entertain people and make them happy.

Jayda: When I get older I would like to be a nurse, doctor or paramedic because I love helping and caring for people.

Tell us your favourite school event.

Joe: My favourite school event is the school disco because it's fun as we get to dress up and spend time with our friends.

Jayda: It's hard to decide my favourite event at school because there are so many fun activities/events held at school. One of my favourite events would be the annual disco as everyone has a great time and you get to wear costumes.

What sort of example do you want to set for the younger students?

Joe: I would like to set an example of being respectful, responsible and safe by showing these qualities every day.

Jayda: I would like to demonstrate an excellent attitude and behaviour towards younger students to promote respectfulness and to decrease the minors and majors amongst my peers.
