Principal Joanna Day said there was a different selection process for each set of captains.

“In the senior school, students nominated, then had a panel interview with staff,” she said.

“The panel then made a recommendation to me and the results were announced.

“In the junior school, the students made a speech to all the primary students, then they had an interview with a leading teacher and myself.

“Students then voted and we put those three things together and the teacher and I made a decision.”

Dr Day said it was pleasing to see a large number of students nominate for captain.

“We had a big field of students to choose from and I was thrilled with their enthusiasm,” she said.

Murtoa College captains are responsible for leading the Student Representative Council.

“The students present awards at whole school assemblies and act as role models,” Dr Day said.

“Senior captains also manage the daily business at assemblies and the junior captains are students their peers can go to if they have any trouble in the yard.”
