Recently the grade 5’s at MPPS have presented their school captain speeches. I wasn’t shortlisted but I want to congratulate all those who did. Here is my speech:
My name is Lucy. I am 11 years old. I have been at the school for 2 years. A school role I have participated in is green team and at my old school I was an SRC member. I have also participated in Tournament of minds for 2 years.These three roles and activities have been great practice for being school captain and I learnt all of the qualities a good school leader should have. I now show those qualities and for those reasons I hope you vote for me to be 2018’s school captain. I feel that I show organisational skills a lot. I have organised 1 or 2 events like at aftercare. Being one of the oldest kids at aftercare I have been asked to put together some activities. That also shows some of my communication skills of working with younger people and older people. I feel like I can take on the responsibility of helping to organise events for the school if I become school captain. Organisation I feel is a big part of being school captain and I think that I show that quality. I love to be organised and I think that if I am school captain I will make sure everything is organised to make school a great, fun learning environment. My communication skills are strong. I am not the most confident public speaker but I really want to expand on that. I used to be really confident and I’m hoping to get that confidence back because that is a big part of being school captain. Before I have worked with people of all different ages and if I become a school captain I won’t be a stranger to speaking to strangers a different age to me. I feel like with this skill I can help promote the school. I feel that I’m definitely open to new learning experiences. I love learning new things and I feel that if I become school captain, I will need to learn some leadership skills and other skills that school captain must have. I will require to be open to new learning experiences to become the best school captain that I can be. My leadership skills have expanded the last few years I have been at MPPS. I feel that I have become a stronger leader and being a good leader is vital when it comes to being school captain. I love leading things and I think that I am confident and organised leader. If I become school captain I will make sure I am a kind, prepared leader of our school. I have lead a lot of out-of- school activities like at aftercare and some after school activities. I love to take charge and lead things but I don’t like to be a rude mean leader. I like to be a leader that looks out for everyone and makes sure everyone is included and is giving it a go or trying their best. At my old school I was an SRC member. That taught me a lot about leading a school and loads of tips about being a leader. I am a coach for SEPEP and I need leader ship skills to help lead my team to victory. Being school captain I would show commitment. I have been playing the guitar for 6 years now and I show a lot of commitment to that. Playing an instrument requires to be committed, responsible and I must be organised. I show all of these qualities and they also apply to being school captain. MPPS students deserve to have a committed school captain and with me as school captain I will make sure they get what they deserve. I have always wanted to be a school captain I would really love if that dream could come true. Being school captain would mean a lot to me so that I why I am applying and would like all of you to consider voting for me. I have now mentioned all of the strong skills that I shine in and they definitely apply to being school captain. Those are the reasons why I would like to be MPPS’s 2018 school captain. I hope you vote for me and thank you for listening to my speech.
Thank you for listening
