With the school year well underway, the primary school leaders from around region are settling into their new positions.
At Gloucester Public School, the leaders are captains Nash Griffin and Amy Fry, and vice captains Nylah Wisely and Jaxson Galvin. They were voted into their positions late last year after giving a compelling speech about their visions for the 2021 school year. It was a tense few weeks for the candidates as they waited patiently for the students to vote, the votes to be tallied and final winner reveal at the school's presentation night.
Over at Barrington school it was a similar process, with the whole school having to wait until presentation night to find out that Ruby Tull and Louis Want had been voted in as the school captains.
The pair know it's their responsibility to act as excellent role models for the other students and represent the school at functions throughout the year.
Both are excited to have been chosen for the very important position and are working hard to do the school proud.
"I want to make everybody happy," Rubi said when asked about her plan for the year.
Louis had a clear goal when he ran for the top job.
"So I could lead the school and be better than any of the other captains at Barrington," he smiled.
At St Joseph's Primary School Gloucester, year six student Aiden Blanchard has joined forces with year five students Ruby Blanchard, Mia Barners, Xanthe Fenning, Nick Maslen and Peta Pettge to create the Mini Vinnies.
For Aiden, being a school leader is all about setting an example for the younger students.
"To help the kindergarten kids to know what to do," Aiden said.
His responsibilities include saying the morning prayer and helping out with canteen duties.
Together with the Mini Vinnies, Aiden helps organise fundraising events for at the school, like pancake Tuesday.
Down the road at Stratford, leaders Jaxon Farley and Maitilda Troope just so happen to be the only students in year six. Regardless of the size of the school, these leaders know their job is just as important as any.
"To be respectful, responsible and kind while representing your school. Be a role model that others can follow," Maitilda said when ask about what it means to be a leader.
She believes her role as a leader is to make sure things run smoothly.
Jaxon knows the role is also representing the school.
"And to show other students how to act responsibly and respectfully," Jaxon said.
His goal is to be a successful school leader, while Maitilda wants to introduce lunch time activities and clubs.
Up the Bucketts Way at Krambach, there just so happens to be four year six students - two boys and two girls. Levi Gray, Tayla Paterson, Mateusz Berry and Ila Ballard LeStrange will be leading the school during 2021.
Together they have been working on fundraising ideas. They plan to hold events like a cupcakes stall and donate money to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
