SCHOOL CAPTAINS 2024
Congratulations to our 2024 School Captains Reegan Brown and Ella Harwood. We are very excited to be working alongside you both and look forward to your valauable input throughout the year.
Reegan and Ella have shared a little about themselves.
G’Day everyone, my name is Reegan and I am honoured to be selected as one of the CSC School Captains for 2024.
Colac Secondary College is an exceptional college that values diversity and prioritises the safety and well-being of all students and staff. As a school captain, I am committed to making the school experience more enjoyable for everyone in the years to come.
I have gained valuable leadership experience through my involvement in sports such as football and cricket. Additionally, I am an active member of the Wye River Surf Life Saving Club, which I initially joined through a school program.
I enjoy assisting others and lending an ear to those who need it. Being a part of our school and local community is a source of immense joy for me.
Together, let us strive to make 2024 a remarkable year for all members of our school community.
CSC’s school values are AIM, ASPIRE & ACHIEVE. To me, this means everyone at CSC can strive to be the best they can be. Set your goals, work hard at them, then you will achieve them. This might not be easy, and you might need to find different ways to achieve your goals but if you are determined, you will find a way to achieve them. As school captain I will reinforce these values.
CSC is a great school that offers many opportunities as well as learning experiences. Elected as school captain for 2024 I would like to promote these opportunities to all students, so more people take up these and learn from them.
Some of these are:
· sporting – such as Sporting pathways and the sporting teams,
· The school production and State School Spectacular
· Alpine Leadership School and
· Kokoda Aspiring Leadership & Personal Development Program.
· Even the application process has been great and will be useful skills for life after school.
I have leadership experience at CSC being on the SRC every year since year 7 and have attended leadership conferences in Melbourne. Outside school, I have held leadership roles in different sporting clubs and community organisations.
I was lucky enough to go to Alpine Leadership School in term 4 of year 9. This was a great experience in a new environment, with a diverse group of people, all of whom were out of their comfort zones. We learned a lot about leadership and communication in many of our experiences.
2023 I was fortunate to do the Kokoda Trek with CSC, AKD and Trinity.
This was a great experience – it was tough both mentally and physically. I had to draw on many skills and learn some new ones such as leadership, teamwork, determination, and resilience, and coping well under stress. All these skills will be able to be used in a role as CSC School Captain.
I believe my greatest quality is my positive attitude and strength of character.
I don’t hesitate when faced with a challenge.
As the school captain, I know I can be a positive role model.
I would like to be a good role model for other students by doing my best at school.
I wear the CSC uniform with pride, I am respectful and a good listener. I take suggestions and ideas on board before making decisions. I enjoy helping others and I try my best at everything I do. I like contributing to the school in every way I can.
I believe my many CSC school experiences so far have given me the leadership qualities and skills that are required as a School Captain and I am willing to learn more as I go.
