Close knit and optimistic, Macintyre High School’s newest leadership team want to make foster an environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing their opinions.
“I started SRC in year seven and left in year nine because I felt that the little people didn’t really get a say,” school captain Andrew Morris said. Co-captain Brooke Fenton had the same experience. Although the pair agree the introduction of a separate junior meeting helped the younger students speak up, they were determined to maintain a friendly and accepting attitude to all.
Brooke is keen to give sporting captains a chance to be more widely involved in school activities and hoped the SRC could make a difference in the Inverell community. Andrew was set on improving student socials and the school grounds.
New to leadership, vice captain Jackson Bell was confident. “I feel I have influential power to make a change,” he said. Like Brooke, he can’t wait to get involved in the community, and wants to work closely with charities and non profits.
“I’ve always felt like Macintyre’s my second home,” vice captain Kaylee Harding said. She hoped to foster that feeling of belonging for everyone, and encourage the whole school to work together for positive change.
“All five of us want to make everyone’s voices are heard and get everyone involved.”
Publicity officer and secretary Emily McCausland was ready to take on her dual roles. A former Holy Trinity student, she joined the SRC to be more involved in her new school.
