School Captain speeches

August13

Each year in Term 3 we elect the school captains for the next year.

Now is your chance to use the skills you have been learning in class masters to convince your teachers and peers of all your wonderful qualities that would go towards you becoming an important leader of our school.

Each year 5 student is expected to prepare and present a speech to the 5-6 students outlining their strengths as a leader and what they would bring to the role of school captain.

The criteria and process for becoming school captain are outlined in this document:

School Captains Application and Selection Process

Please download it and read it to get an idea of what you might write.

Speeches will be presented in Week 8 of term (from 4-8 September).

All speeches should be emailed to your teacher before the 4th of September, and posted on your blog after you have presented it.

Feel free to speak to your teacher, this year’s captains or last year’s short-listed candidates if you would like advice on creating an outstanding application.
