School captains plan to be approachable to their peers

AS JOVY Griffin and Callum Evans enter their senior year at Burnett State College they have a common goal in mind, to be approachable to their younger peers.

The Year 12 students are BSC's 2019 school captains, and with that comes the responsibility of being a good role model.

Over the coming weeks the Central and North Burnett Times will chat to school captains around the region about their aspirations for their year as a leader.

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

Jovy: More undercover seating areas for students to enjoy as well as trying to get some more water coolers near science block.

Callum: I don't believe anything needs to change at the school, as it has everything it needs.  

Do you have plans for when you graduate?

Jovy: I want to go to university and study physiology as well as utilising my lifeguard and swim qualifications. 

Callum: No firm plans as of yet, just concentrating on getting the best OP I can, then going from there.

Tell us about your favourite school event of the year.

Jovy: Formal, but also I love the sport events. 

Callum: All schools touch

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

Jovy: Comfortable to talk too and try and be a strong leader. 

Callum: I hope to be an honest, fair, approachable role model for younger students.

Next up, Eidsvold and Mundubbera school captains will share their hopes for a successful senior year.
