School Captains - Caboolture

Meet our School Captains for 2017 and learn what the College's theme, Unite to Ignite, means to them:

Madison Thompson, College Captain

"The theme unite to ignite reflects our goals of this year; in order to be the best people we can be we need to come together as students and as a school to embrace and support each other. Through doing this, creating deeper connections we can ignite and be the best people we can be.

Leadership is empowerment, i think to be a good leader you need to empower others to be the best they can be and help them to use their qualities to also become leaders in themselves.

My coach has influenced me, he helps me get the best out of myself and be the best I can be. He shows me that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and are willing to do the work towards achieving it."

Sabah Uddin, College Captain

"To me, Unite and Ignite means to bring together everyone to achieve great feats.

Leadership is a responsibility I am entrusted with to help everyone be the best they can be. School to me is a place of laughter, joy, friendship and learning.

I aim to be the best that I can be."             

Lucilla Osswald, Middle School Captain

"To me unite to ignite means working together as a team to accomplish the best possible outcome for each individual.

I enjoy walking into the close, safe and friendly Grace community, I enjoy seeing my close group of friends everyday. I enjoy the teachers who encourage you and who are passionate about what they teach. A great and memorable experience I have had at Grace would be Grace Celebrates. I thoroughly enjoyed playing in the band, performing in the musical and being nominated middle school captain.

A cause that is close to me would be Anzac Day. I feel so appreciative of the men and women who fought and gave their lives for our country so that we could live in peace and harmony. Their courageous spirit shines bright. My parents have influenced me a lot. They both have good work ethics, they teach me to be organised, resilient, disciplined, determined and work hard to be the best I can be."

Patrick Binkert, Middle School Captain  

"To me Unite to Ignite means you need to work together to accomplish something truly amazing.

My aim for this year is to get to know the year 7s better and to have a successful fundraising for the World's Greatest Shave. I think leadership is to help others in need and to lead them onto a better path.

My father influenced me because he was a leader and he helped me achieve my goals."
