Heritage College welcomes its newly elected School Captains and student leaders for the 2021 academic year.
All positions were announced during Presentation Night on Wednesday 2 December 2020.
The successful candidates were selected as part of a student nomination process and were awarded their positions by the College Leadership team.
Heritage College Principal, Mr Sonny Aiono, congratulated the student leaders, made up of two College Captains at Year 12 level and four Primary Captains at Year 6 level. A further 24 House Captains were selected, 16 from Primary (Officer and Narre Warren South) and eight from Secondary.
Mr Aiono said the assembly of student leadership will bring fresh perspectives while building on the knowledge and experience of previous student leaders.
“I would like to thank our 2020 Captains, who participated in the student leadership program in a year like no other, abiding by their responsibilities as college representatives where possible”, he said.
“I am proud of the work of our College Captains over the last year and look forward to the coming year with our incoming student leadership team,” he said.
“Thank you to our previous College Captains for their dedication to the Heritage College community.”
Head of Primary Mr Roger Sevenhuysen said there had been significant interest in this year’s student leadership nominations.
“It was wonderful to see the number of candidates running this year and getting involved in student leadership”, he said.
College Captains and student leaders will be formally introduced to the wider community following their official announcements at Heritage Day in the first week of school in 2021.
