School Captains

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12

At Grace Lutheran College, we are proud to have many young men and women dedicated to leading their fellow students. 

Our Caboolture and Rothwell campuses are each lead by their own elected School Captains. Students are chosen from Year 12 and Year 9 and are selected by their teachers and classmates.

Students also nominate and elect their own leaders across other important areas of the college, including Faith and Service Captains, Academic Captains and House Captains.

Caboolture Captains

An extract from Captains 2022: Getting to know our leaders

Amelie Langlands | Captain's Address

I nominated myself for School Captain because I want to challenge myself, help people and I want to be a great role model. It’s such an amazing opportunity – even if I didn’t get the role, I would have been so grateful for the experience of the nomination process. But now, I’m more excited than ever to get started!

I think kindness and honesty are some of the most important traits in leadership. Being able to communicate effectively, being organised, reliable and empathetic are also extremely important. I want my fellow students to remember me as someone who makes them feel good about themselves. I want to be remembered as someone who is friendly and kind - someone they can look up to, that’s always willing to help. Someone they can count on, who is always there for a laugh, a chat, or just to listen. Most of all, I want students to remember me as someone who made a positive difference and made them feel like they are an important part of the Grace community.

My passion is the performing arts, so I really want to pursue that throughout my life. After year 12 I hope to study a Bachelor of Musical Theatre at the Griffith Conservatorium, but who knows where life will take me! Whether it’s on stage, film or tv, as long as I’m singing, dancing, and acting – I’m living the dream!


William Spry | Captain's Address

What led me to nominate for School Captain was my desire to represent my school and to take advantage of the opportunity to get to better know my College community. During my time as captain, I wish to foster a closer connection between all students. I also wish to encourage students to participate in all aspects of College life and to take advantage of the incredible opportunity’s they have.

To achieve this as a leader, I believe the qualities needed include patience, determination, innovation, selflessness, and compassion. As one of the 2022 School Captain’s, I am very excited to run assemblies and be involved in other events where I have the opportunity to engage with students. 

Previous captains have inspired me to act for the benefit of others and to always give 100% to the role. From this, I hope to be remembered by students as a person who made them laugh and brought some light to their day, as a person who did things for the benefit of others and who was kind and considerate towards others.

Following graduation, I wish to go to either Tafe or University to study Outdoor Education, and at the completion of my qualification, hopefully I can pursue a career in Outdoor Education as a camp instructor at Googa.

Some things that my peers may not know about me is that I love making people laugh and I love seeing people grow and conquer challenges they may face, especially when I am able to help them to do so. I love the outdoors, playing sport, spending time with my friends and family, and just living life to the fullest. I look forward to serving the community as one of the 2022 School Captains.
