Hi, my name is Hamish and I would like to represent you as one of the 2019 school captains.
I believe I have a lot of good qualities needed to be a great school captain. I am a very organised and responsible person, traits which are very important for a school captain who has to organise and lead the SRC. For example, I always do my homework early in the week so I don’t have do it at the last minute. As vice-captain of the inter-school AFL team this year, I was responsible for getting out all the equipment and setting up the training drills. That really helped our team improve.
I think it’s also important for a school captain to be a responsible person and able to commit their time to the position. I have gone to almost every school working bee in my own time on weekends. I also practised for Tournament of Minds outside of school hours. Another example of my ability to commit and focus to a goal is my saxophone playing. I play the saxophone in the school MVIMP program and out of school, I practise most days and also attend an hour lesson each weekend to work towards music exams. This has really helped me improve my organisational skills (as well as my saxophone playing!).
If I was voted in, I would always make sure your opinion matters and your ideas can help improve this already great school. I always treat people fairly and nicely which is very important for a leader.
I also like public speaking. The role of school captain requires lot of public speaking like announcing awards and upcoming events as well as welcoming people visiting our school.
Being school captain would be a very good chance for me to improve my own leadership skills and represent this wonderful school. If I was elected, I will always undertake my duties responsibly, go to meetings and represent you and the whole school. I will always listen to you and value your opinions as they matter strongly. I will continue to treat people with respect, as it is one of our most important school values. I hope this speech has made you consider why I believe you should elect me to represent you in 2019.
