School captains encourage teamwork
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.
