Crookwell schools can look forward to 2019 under the leadership of their new school captains.
The school captains at St Mary's Primary School are Bella Croker and Archie Pursell, with Lawrence captains Billie Skelly and Taj Cooper, and Aloysius captains Paige Croker and Bradley Nagle.
At Crookwell High School (CHS), the captains are Renee Buggie and D’Arcy Slater, with vice-captains Samuel Abbey and Georgie O’Brien.
CHS captains are part of the Student Representative Council (SRC), which is in the process of being elected, principal Vero Joseph said.
Past projects that the SRC has worked include Positive Vibes Week, which is part of the positive education strategy, trivia nights and multiple fundraisers.
The prefects for Crookwell Public School are Annie Knight, Luke Palmer, Samuel McGregor and Lillian Skelly.
The Year 6 students will lead the school assembly, attend extra-curricular activities and events while representing the school, and will act as role models for the younger students, the captains said.
“We’ll take on a bigger responsibility at the school,” Sam said.
“A lot of the teachers help us with it,” Luke added.
The students agreed that they are all looking forward to the Year 6 camp later this year, and that sport is one of their favourite subjects, along with maths.
They added, that they would be working on bigger projects but it was too early to tell what these would be.
Outside of the classroom, Sam won a sponsorship with Ritual Hockey and Luke received a scholarship from the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium.
