At the end of last term, we farewelled our Year 12 students, and along with them, the school leaders who have served us so well over the past 12 months. They handed on that very important responsibility to a new team of school leaders. We’ve asked them a little about themselves to give our whole school community the chance to get to know them better.
The 2019 school captains are Todd Langstaff, Josh Milliken, Jarryd Murphy and Phoebe Noakes (not pictured above).
What’s something you’re looking forward to about your new role?
Todd: I’m excited for the opportunities, the chance to help guide the school in a godly manner whilst also working with my fellow captains and teachers to invoke positive change across the community.
Josh: I am looking forward to making a positive influence in the school through my actions and behaviour.
Jarryd: I’m really looking forward to leading the school in an enthusiastic and beneficial way as to create a stronger sense of a joint community, as well as creating an overall stronger vibe of joy within the school.
Phoebe: I’m looking forward to the many challenges that come with leading the school and seeing my personal growth as the captains team tackles them together.
How do you hope that the experience of being one of our school leaders will change you?
Todd: I hope that this experience will push me outside of my comfort zone and challenge me to do things I would not do otherwise (organising an assembly etc.), and thus allow me to grow in my confidence but also in my relationship with God.
Josh: I hope to develop many new leadership skills that I can apply to other areas for my life, both inside and outside of school.
Jarryd: This role will definitely allow me to gain an understanding of what it means to be an ‘official’ leader in a larger community. I’m looking forward to all the valuable lessons that will entail.
Phoebe: I hope I will become more confident in my ability to lead in God’s name and feel more equipped to do his good works beyond school.
What’s something the school community ought to know about you?
Todd: I am an avid supporter of Chelsea Football (soccer) Club in England, and enjoy watching them play on a regular basis.
Josh: My Mum is from New Zealand … (Don’t worry Josh, we won’t hold it against you – Ed)
Jarryd: I like to fix things. Especially the problems everyone has been talking about for years.
Phoebe: I have a twin brother. I am older. (Noted! – Ed)
We’re looking forward to getting to know our new school captains better over the coming year. We wish them all the best in their new roles.
