For those who don’t know me, My name is Vedada Lazarevic and I have been attending to Eight Mile Plains State School for almost 6 wonderful years now which is since prep and I would be very honoured and privileged to represent my school as a leader.
I would give anything to be school captain or vice captain in the following year 2012, I feel I can be a positive leader and excellent role model for younger students as well as my peers. I am a confident, well mannered, approachable student, and a good representative of our school for these reasons. I am already familiar with leadership roles, having been on student council from the beginning of this year, and I also do childcare and sports bins and out of school grounds I am included in a basketball club which I most likely enjoy doing.
I believe the role of school captain is more than just a badge and a title. It means being a good leader and representative of the school, respecting your friends and peers,being trustworthy, and having pride in our school community. I’d meet the challenge of being a school captain but I would approach it with enthusiasm and determination, an open mind and everyone’s best interest at heart.
If I am elected school captain I will make sure everyone feels comfortable and included and is doing the right thing, that preps and new students always feel welcome, and i'm willing to be open to listen to peoples idea's and opionions, and that the school grounds are always clean and tidy. Even if all these things mean giving up my lunch times and recesses, I am willing to dedicate my extra time that I have into being school captain and to the responsibilities that come with this honourable title. Now, I have to admit that I don’t know everything, and I also know I’m not the smartest, sportiest or the tallest candidate for the job but I will promise you this, if you vote for me elected, I will put everything I can in to the role of school captain, because being a leader at Eight Mile Plains State Primary School would not only be a huge honour but it would be my biggest pleasure.
I will do whatever is needed to help our school and the people inside it, I am overflowing with ideas and ways to make our school a better place. This role demands time, effort, organisation and confidence as well as dedication. I cannot think of anything I could be more dedicated and passionate about than this school, and being school captain is one way to give back to Eight Mile Plains State School after all the things that it has given to me over the past six amazing years.
So, I truly believe that I would make a wonderful school captain as I have the ability to face the challenges there may be along the way, but in the end, I hope to make a difference and I know it will be a rewarding role.
Thank you for listening to my speech, and I hope that you vote for me.
