Class of 2020: Get to know your Thangool SS leaders

BEING in Year 6 means, in some respects, you are the king of the school but a select group of students are using their position to be a good role model for the younger year levels.

 

The Central Telegraph caught up with the Year 6 school leaders at Thangool State School for a meet and greet and to see why they wanted the responsibility.

 

A special mention to School Captain Ruby Johnston who wasn't at school today but she is following on from both her older sisters who have been School Captains.

 

Jed Heading

"I like sports and I wanted to take on the responsibility as captain," Heading said.

"I have an older brother who was a school leader and I wanted to follow in his footsteps."
