Lead­ers of­fi­cially wel­comed

Gin Gin High’s cap­tains eye big fu­tures

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THERE is no greater hon­our for sec­ondary stu­dents than to be elected by their peers to fill lead­er­ship po­si­tions at their school.

For Lucy McLennan and Har­ri­son Tobin, the op­por­tu­nity to cap­tain Gin Gin State High School is the ful­fil­ment of long-held dreams.

“It’s some­thing I’ve al­ways wanted to do,” Lucy said af­ter last week’s lead­er­ship cer­e­mony.

The cer­e­mony for­mally in­tro­duced this year’s se­nior and ju­nior cap­tains, stu­dent coun­cil rep­re­sen­ta­tives and house lead­ers.

Lucy is a high-achiev­ing stu­dent fo­cused on mak­ing pos­i­tive dif­fer­ences to peo­ple’s lives.

With a pas­sion for maths and sciences, Lucy said her goal was to work as a doc­tor.

Harry’s pas­sions are also maths and science, but he in­tends to pur­sue a ca­reer in en­gi­neer­ing.

Both Year 12 stu­dents are qual­ity hockey play­ers, and are ready to start their sea­sons for City and Rovers re­spec­tively.

Ju­nior cap­tains Jas­mine Gan­non and Con­nor Boon were also un­veiled at the cer­e­mony.

Jas­mine’s goal is to one day work as a lawyer, and with a love for English and busi­ness stud­ies she is on the right path to re­alise her dream.

Aussie rules player Con­nor de­scribed high school as a “good ex­pe­ri­ence so far”, but said he in­tended to be­come an elec­tri­cian.
