Mundubbera captains on a lunchtime mission

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

Jess Gillam: This year I would like to help introduce more activities to do in a lunchtime.

Emma Whelan: I would like to help introduce activities to do at lunch times that help make coming to school more enjoyable.

Caitlin Wagner: I would like to introduce a policy where once a month the school leaders would go to the primary school to discuss any issues the students may have, as I am aware that some of the younger students find coming up to high school and student council meetings uncomfortable. I also would like to help raise funds for the P&C with the installation of fans to the hall.

Piper Eastcott: I would like to introduce more activities at lunchtime for the students. I also think we should purchase ceiling fans for the hall. A another great improvement for the school would be air-conditioners in the Home Economics room as it can get quite hot in there.

Do you have plans for when you graduate?

Jess: After I complete Year 11 and 12 I would like to go to university and become a science/maths teacher.

Emma: My plans for after I graduate at Mundubbera are to continue Year 11 and 12 at Burnett State College. After completing Year 12, I would like to go to university to study nursing.

Caitlin: Once I graduate, I want to go to university and study in science or performing arts.

Piper: After I graduate from Mundubbera, I will be going to Year 11 and 12. I would also like to study anthropology or social work at university.

Tell us about your favourite school event of the year.

Jess: My favourite school event of the year is speech night because I love seeing everyone's accomplishments and celebrating my own.

Emma: My favourite school event is the fete. I like the fete because there are activities that all students can participate in and we get to see the school band and choir.

Caitlin: This year I am looking forward to Hoof and Hook as it is being held in Mundubbera. I am also looking forward to the numerous sporting events and the formal at the end of the year.

Piper: My favourite school event is gala night. I love watching the students have the confidence to get up on the stage and perform. I also think it takes a lot of resilience to practise so much.

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

Jess: I want to set the right example to younger students. As a school captain I will do this by doing the right thing and being respectful towards everyone.

Emma: I want to set a good example for the younger students so they can learn from us.

Caitlin: I want to lead by example by showing them that I am approachable and easy to talk to, to be honest and to represent my school with pride.

Piper: I would like to have younger students aspire to step up and become a school leader as well as study hard and receive great marks.
