Stu­dents pick the best peo­ple for the job

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - and Harry Fletcher.

Puck­a­pun­yal Pri­mary School has had a long and proud tra­di­tion se­lect­ing school cap­tains, house cap­tains and stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive coun­cil­lors.

The stu­dents were se­lected through a demo­cratic process where their peers voted for the best peo­ple for the job. Each can­di­date had to make a speech to their peers.

School cap­tains

Abbey Ken­dell and Harry Fletcher: Their role is to rep­re­sent the school on be­half of fel­low stu­dents.

They will be busy or­gan­is­ing let­ters, mak­ing speeches, meet­ing and chap­er­on­ing dig­ni­taries and con­duct­ing a va­ri­ety of im­por­tant ac­tiv­i­ties for the school.

At each assem­bly they will re­port how the house teams are go­ing col­lect­ing pos­i­tive be­hav­iour tick­ets.
