In the lead up to the 2022 State election, our politicians could learn a thing or two from Blackfriars’ new Primary School House leaders.
The boys have vowed to be approachable, inclusive and supportive as they lead their Houses in 2022.
- Candler: Finn Juhasz (Captain), Manav Agheda (Vice-Captain)
- Cussen: Ashton Skinner, James McAdam
- Dowling: Samuel Pedlar, Reilly Lane
- Spence: Charlie Roisetter, Keyan Ashna
New Candler Captain Finn said he would “take care” to lead his House “carefully and wisely”.
“I am a great role model and I promise I will spread my knowledge of leadership among you,” Finn said.
“I am responsible, reliable, trustworthy and hard working. I will do everything I can for my House, school and community.”
That sentiment was echoed by Samuel, who said he was a good example of “hard work and determination”.
“I try to set a good example outside of the school, as well as inside of the grounds,” Samuel said.
Keyan said he wanted to “make a difference” in the wider Blackfriars community.
“I am here to … spread as much positivity as possible,” Keyan said.
The boys were elected after giving speeches to students from their Houses and a subsequent vote.
Head of Primary Emma Begg was pleased with the number of boys who put themselves forward for leadership positions.
“We had so many outstanding candidates to lead their houses that I know the Primary School will be in good hands this year,” Mrs Begg said.
Blackfriars Head Prefect Dan Heath had some leadership advice for the Primary School Captains and Vice Captains: “I’d just say it’s really about being approachable. You want to make sure that you’re the voice for people who might not otherwise be heard. And I know you will do that.”
