2016 Leadership role


At the 2015 Point England School senior prize giving our school thanked the 2015 Prefects and House Captains for their work, support, and leadership. It was time to hand their role to the 2016 leaders. First Mr Burt had the 2015 Prefects and House Captains on the stage then he announced the Prefects first, "girls first" Mr Burt said, "Khaia, Ariana, Marilyn, Elizabeth G and now the boys, Collin, Jordan, John-lee, Tevita", everyone was cheering, these people had to shake the 2015 Prefects hands on the stage.

"And now the house captains" Mr Burt continues, The 2015 House Captains were on the stage, "Te Aurere(Red) Ashley and Matiu, Hokule'a(Green) Rowana and Sateki, Hinemoana(Blue) Elizabeth and Promise" Mr Burt says, as I was sitting their I was cheering for my friends. Then Mr Burt said my house colour, "Hikianalia(Yellow) Taunese....", I was surprised to hear my name and when I stood up, I saw my yr 8 friends cheering me on ".... and Te Mauri". When I went to shake Leila's hand I saw that she was happy for me. When we shaked each others hands we had to walk off. I was proud of myself as I walked of the stage.

Next year my goal is communicate with my partner and to lead the school well and encourage the kids to best at school. Being a House Captain can be hard and difficult but I will need to brave and to carry on the role that I was handed. I also need  to work  with the other House captains to get the job done throughout the year. Us House captains will also help the Prefects to do their jobs well. Next I will be a good role model and will try my best to be a good House Captain.
