HAVEN Primary School captains Brody Devlin and Hannah Weir are looking forward to learning new skills this year.
The two students were elected to lead the school at the end of last year.
Brody said Business Horsham’s Wendy Mitchell interviewed students as part of the captain selection process.
”We all went in groups of about four, and then she picked some students and our class also did a vote,” she said.
“My friends kept telling me, ‘You’re going to get it’, but I said I didn’t think so. I was a little bit surprised.”
Hannah said she also did not expect to be elected.
“I was really surprised,” she said.
Hannah is following in the footsteps of her eldest sister, who was also a Haven Primary School captain.
Both she and Brody are looking forward to improving their public speaking skills during the year, when they are required to speak at assemblies and other events.
“I want to challenge myself with public speaking, because I’m not really good at that,” Brody said.
Hannah said the pair would also attend an Anzac Day commemoration service as part of their role.
Their first roles as captains came at an assembly on Monday, when they took an oath and addressed their teachers and other students.
“We had to stand up the front and announce everything that was happening at school this week,” Brody said.
