School Captains

Being a school captain is a great opportunity to be a leader and role model to students in our school. School captains represent our school at external events and take part in planning internal events such as assemblies. This year we have a very diverse group of captains from different backgrounds and with different interests and talents. However, one thing that they have shown that they have in common is the commitment, passion and enthusiasm to improve the school and make it the best place it can be for students today and in the future.

Congratulations to all of the students that nominated themselves and to all the staff and students that took part in the election process.

 

Introducing CESC’s 2019 School Captains:

Grace Tibusious

Grace Tibusious

I have been elected as one of the School Captains for 2019. I am completing Year 12 this year. I wanted to take on this role because I wanted young women to have someone to look up to and come to for support. I want young women at CESC to know that if I can do it, they can to. I also want to ensure that everyone in the school feels like their voices matter and that they are being heard. My job is to make sure I make myself available to my fellow students so they can voice their opinions on how to make our school a better place. 

 

Waad Salih

I am completing my Year 12 this year. I really wanted to have the opportunity to play a role in student leadership at CESC because I knew the possible positive changes a leader could make within our school.  I had originally thought that I didn't have the ability to represent our school. However, when I was approached about applying for leadership and I learnt about the new initiatives taking place in student voice, in particular the SRC, I jumped at the opportunity. I felt like the passion that I had to bestow change was going to be appreciated and encouraged through this position. I look forward to being at the forefront of change and growth of student voice at CESC.

I am currently a Year 12 student at CESC. I applied for the role of School Captain as I wanted to be a role model and inspire students in the younger year levels. As school captain, I want to push towards making our school anti-violence and anti-bullying, and ultimately make our school a safer place for everyone. Over my school years, I have had many previous leaders become an inspiration and role model to me, and I want to continue their legacy and make them proud.

Vice Captains

Brittney Garvey

Brittney Garvey

I am a student in Year 12 VCAL. I wanted to be a CESC Vice School captain because I wanted to make a change to our school. I also wanted to be captain because I wanted to challenge myself and be the best I can be in my final year at school. Being the Vice Captain means a lot to me, it gave me hope that I can do anything if I push myself. Also, as this is my last year, I would like to play a role in making positive changes to our school for future students. I am looking forward to working with the younger year levels to increase our student voice and ultimately make our school better.

I am currently completing Year 12. For me being a Vice Captain of Cranbourne East Secondary College is not just a title, but an honour. To be in the position where I can make a difference, lead and make our school a more jovial environment is a great opportunity for me.  This position will also give me the opportunity to be a role model for students and to be there in times of need and celebration. I strongly stand by our school values of respect, growth, achievement and responsibility. These values are what makes Cranbourne East Secondary College a place where students are able to learn, feel safe and accepted. This is how I feel about my ‘second home’ and I desire to do everything I can to make every student at my school feel the same way I do. 

Olympia Ward

I am currently in Year 11 and when I first showed interest in becoming a school Vice Captain my peers and teachers supported me every step of the way. I have always had a passion for helping others and standing up for people in order to make a positive change. Being chosen to fulfil a position in which I am able to be a voice for CESC students is an honour. Although the responsibility will be a challenge, it will only help me to grow and prosper, not only as  a leader, but as a person. So far, my role has helped me to develop my communication and organisation skills. I look forward to the journey ahead of me as a CESC Vice Captain.

Year Level Leaders

Part of implementing the SRC was the addition of new student leadership roles called Student Year Level Leaders. Student Year Level Leaders represent their year levels on the SRC and liaise between the students and the SRC. This ensures that all students are represented on the SRC and to increase the number of students developing their leadership and mentoring skills.

To select our Student Year Level Leaders, each year level took part in an online student election, voting for nominees from their respective year level.

This year, the interest and participation in the nomination and election process was outstanding. There were over 41 applications received for these new positions with students showing a real interest in being part of starting something new that is aimed at increasing student agency, voice and governance. Nominees were active in promoting themselves and teachers played an enormous role in encouraging students to nominate themselves and to take part in this democratic process.

Congratulations to the following students on being elected as the Student Year Level Leaders.

House Captains

At CESC we have a house system that consists of 5 Houses: Chisholm, Parkes, Deakin, Florey and Gilmore. The house culture shines through at events such as the swimming sports and athletics day. There is a strong house spirit at CESC and these days in particular bring out an array of colour and costumes. Being a house captain means leading your house and building the house spirit.

The House captains for 2019 are:

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The SRC is a student run and governed body that addresses the needs, interests and concerns of the students. To help establish this body all school captains will play a role on the SRC executive.

The SRC meets on a weekly basis on a Thursday during lunch. Students meet to discuss any suggestions and projects that they would like to take part in. The SRC is made up of school leaders and is open to all students.

The SRC has minutes from all the discussions and liaises with the school leadership through the SRC facilitator. SRC elected representatives communicate with their respective year level and represent their year level interests on the council.

The elected Year Level Leaders form part of the executive for the SRC.

The SRC executive is made up of 18 students all playing different roles to collectively run the SRC in the interests of the students. The SRC is open to all students and meets every Thursday at lunchtime.

For 2019 the SRC Executive are:

President

Waad Salih

Vice President

Grace Tibusious

Secretary

Olympia Ward

Treasurer

Conor Pennington

Publicity Officer

Poe Pouesi

Social and community Coordinator

Brittney Garvey

Year Level Reps

All elected Student Year Level Leaders

 

SRC Events

Harmony and Close the Gap Day

The first SRC event this year was to organise Harmony and Close the Gap day that took place on the 21st of March. The SRC, school captains and the Culture Club organised and hosted the Harmony and Close the Gap day assembly. The assembly started with a minutes silence for all the victims and the families of those directly affected by the Christchurch attack. As part of the celebrations, our multiculturalism students put together and performed cultural and traditional dances. There were Bollywood, Samoan, Cook Islander, Mauri, Lebanese, Greek and Korean dances to name a few.

Many parents and members of the school community attended and many students were dressed in traditional or cultural dress for the day.

 

GRIP Leadership Conference

On Tuesday 12th March, I attended the GRIP leadership conference at the Melbourne exhibition and convention centre, along with some other student leaders at CESC. This conference was a practical and interactive training conference for student leaders that had schools from all around Victoria. We attended multiple sessions that addressed different strategies to build a strong leadership team in our school.

The first session showed us how to recognise which people we should focus on as leaders and how to achieve this. To be able to pursue any cause within our school or society, our SRC team had to be firm. To accomplish this, we all had to build our character. These characteristics are abbreviated as CORE - 'C', confidence with humility; 'O', others focused; 'R', reliability; 'E', empathy. Each of these aspects is vital for leaders to efficiently perform their duties to the student body and contribute to building positive school culture.

While our school has been able to donate and adopt causes that interest some students in our school, this program specified how we could further engage students with causes that can increase their enthusiasm to participate in events. As leaders, we should be able to work towards involving as many people as possible through focusing on the people rather than the event. We should be able to target student’s interests and needs through widening the appeal and strategically promoting and being creative with events to ensure student attendance. While being able to target students is essential to the success of the SRC, creating a bond of trust between students is critical, as is including students to the team that can help create social influence and create a positive school culture. Leaders can gain trust and get ideas from students via suggestion boxes as well as building personal relationships through being active and visible to all year levels.

Change can only happen when leaders are equipped with the knowledge and skills to make necessary adjustments. Attending the GRIP Leadership Conference as school leaders was a form of individual and collective improvement. We are looking forward to implementing all the strategies that we learnt to help further strengthen the fabric of CESC and to leave a legacy of student voice and agency for years to come.
