The Mt Maria College Captains for 2019 are Esther Majaliwa and Sam Campion.
After applying to be a part of the College Leadership Team, and following an interview with the Principal, the self-nominated students deliver speeches for consideration by their cohort and the college teaching team, who then vote to select the captains and other students leaders for the coming year.
Principal Mr Glenn McConville said that all candidates were outstanding, with a tremendous number of students putting their name forward for a leadership position in 2019.
“The Leadership team are thrilled that so many students are prepared to step up into leadership roles in the College community” Principal Mr Glenn McConville said.
During her speech, Esther said that she believes the College Captain role is an "opportunity to inspire youth in the Mt Maria community" and that the captaincy will be "an amazing platform to reach out and be a part of real change."
Sam spoke about his focus in the captaincy role being “making sure no one is left behind" in the College community, and ensuring that 2019 will be "a year to remember" for the Class of 2019.
