School cap­tains en­cour­age team­work

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE re­gion’s se­nior stu­dents are set­ting high stan­dards and prov­ing to be strong role mod­els.

Shalom Col­lege cap­tains for 2016 Meg An­der­son and Theo De­laney are prov­ing to be a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence.

Proud par­ents Peter and Janet An­der­son said they ad­mired their daugh­ter Meg, who was prov­ing to be a great leader.

The An­der­son fam­ily has strong links to the re­gion and op­er­ates the Her­itage Shop and Post Of­fice in Childers.

“Peter and I were ex­cited to hear Meg was voted in as cap­tain and she was in­vited to Perth for all cap­tains,” Mrs An­der­son said.

While Theo is from Bund­aberg, his fam­ily has strong con­nec­tions to Childers. His great-grand­fa­ther Joe De­laney was a realtor and renowned auc­tion­eer in the district.

In Jan­uary, the Shalom cap­tains Meg and Theo trav­elled to Aquinas Col­lege in Perth for the Ed­mund Rice Catholic Schools Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence, to­gether with 70 cap­tains from all of the Catholic schools as­so­ci­ated with Ed­mund Rice Education.

Stu­dents from Aus­tralia and New Zealand spent three days learn­ing valu­able lead­er­ship skills.

Theo and Meg are both ex­cited about the year ahead and plan to use their roles as col­lege cap­tains to en­cour­age team­work and pro­mote in­clu­sive­ness.
