Students pick the best people for the job
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.
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.
Their role is to represent their house by taking charge of a number of sporting and positive behaviour activities.
They will be busy organising teams for sporting carnivals and making speeches on behalf of their house.
At each assembly they will select winners from their house teams as part of a positive behaviour program.
Student Representative Council’s role is to represent the classrooms during meetings.
The representatives discuss school issues, organise fundraising for the school and for various charities and report back to their classrooms. Their minutes will be in the Wednesday Notes throughout the year. — Kevin Warne, principal
