Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA State School is get­ting ready to elect its lead­ers for 2018, with six stu­dents nom­i­nat­ing them­selves for the top job.

The stu­dents run­ning for po­si­tions are Kiana Watt, Chloe Mc­Gov­ern, Ni­cola Thor­burn, Jay­cia Adams, Liam Op­per­mann and So­phie Zipf.

Prin­ci­pal Peter Townsend said it was great to see the stu­dents step up for lead­er­ship roles.

“It’s great to see that we have six young adults will­ing to step up and lead from the front,” Mr Townsend said.

“All stu­dents from Prep to Year 10 plus staff from across the school lis­tened to the ideas and di­rec­tion that our can­di­dates have for our school in 2018.”

On Thurs­day night the top four will be an­nounced.

“The top four can­di­dates will be iden­ti­fied at the awards night on Thurs­day and the fi­nal de­ci­sion for school cap­tains and vice-cap­tains will hap­pen in Fe­bru­ary 2018 af­ter an in­ter­view process,” he said.

“Our cap­tains pro­vide a con­duit to our staff and it is my hope that they in­spire our younger stu­dents to lead in the fu­ture.

“We look for a gen­uine car­ing at­ti­tude and a per­son who lis­tens.”
