School Captains

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12

At pro, we are proud to have many young men and women dedicated to leading their fellow students. 

Our Caboolture and Rothwell campuses are each lead by their own elected School Captains. Students are chosen from Year 12 and Year 9 and are selected by their teachers and classmates.

Students also nominate and elect their own leaders across other important areas of the college, including Faith and Service Captains, Academic Captains and House Captains.

Captains 2023: Getting to know our leaders

Felicity Klinge:


What traits are most important to leadership and why?

“I think being someone who is real and vulnerable is really important – showing people that it’s ok not to always have it all together, we are always learning, I want to show people what that’s like.”

How would you like to be remembered?

“I would like to be remembered as someone really approachable as a friendly face around the school – if someone needed to have a chat I’d like to know they could come up to me. Leaving a legacy isn’t necessarily about what you do, but how you made people felt. I want people to remember me as someone who made them feel welcome and like they belonged,”

What are you planning on doing after school?

“Secondary education and teaching modern history, otherwise I could go with a completely different direction and, or a bachelor of criminology and do forensics.”

What inspires you?

“I think seeing all the captains since I have started at Grace, I remember meeting the girls’ school captain my first day of year 7, she sat down and had a chat with us and she was so funny and welcoming, she really wanted to be there and be there with us. I feel like I have gotten to know the captains more throughout the years and they - and the school itself - have given me so much, that I want to give back. I want to help people have the same amazing experience that I have had.”

Lachlan Scudamore:

What traits are most important to leadership and why?

“I think it’s really important to be a servant to people, to give your time freely and try to be there for them, ensuring that they are ok and if they are not, helping them in any way you can, and stepping up to change.”

How would you like to be remembered? 

“I want to be a leader who is remembered as someone who was approachable. Everyone’s experiences are different and everyone interprets situations differently, so as a leader I feel like you need to be the person who makes a difference to those individuals and listens to their individual needs. I definitely want to make an impression on everyone’s lives at the school. I Want to be that captain that anyone will talk to and I want people to know I will do things for others and will put myself out to make sure I help others in any way that I can.

"My goal is to get people from waking up in the morning and going ‘Oh, I have to go to school,’ to saying 'Yes, I get to go to school,' and I want students to enjoy coming to school and enjoy having this community.”

What are you planning on doing after school? 

“For so long I knew what I wanted to do, I wanted to be an aesthetic nurse but now I think I want to go to uni and do a degree in management and have that under my belt. Then I’m also thinking about the police. I do feel like if I don’t do something that helps people where I give back to the community then I won’t be fulfilled.”

What inspires you?

“I’m inspired to give back to the school and the students. Throughout the years, the captains have always made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. They helped me to feel safer and less nervous. These captains inspired me to make an impact on other student’s lives at the school.”

Rothwell Captains

Captains 2023: Getting to know our leaders

Claudia Braid:

What traits do you believe are most important to leadership, and why?

"I believe there are many traits that are important to leadership in general, such as confidence, teamwork and an optimistic approach to the challenging aspects of being a leader. Although, I wish to focus on being a leader that is especially dedicated to fostering kindness, compassion and community within Grace."

What do you want to accomplish in the role?

"I wish to be regarded as an approachable member within the Grace community, someone who promotes inclusivity, that students can share the good and bad with, and who they know will support them no matter what. I also hope that with this, I can push the importance of the voice and ideas of students and do my best to act on any of their ideas, concerns or wishes."

Abby Patterson:

What inspired you to become a Captain?

 "I was inspired to become school captain as it would allow me the opportunity to encourage other students in the Grace community to initiate change, whether it be big or small contributions to expand the Grace culture and allow it to become a place of growth and a place for students to express their individuality without the fear of judgement."

What part of the ‘job’ are you most excited for in 2023?

"I am looking forward to creating long lasting connections between the grades at Grace. I think it is important as it creates a safe space for the younger grades who have recently moved into their high school life as well as creating a mentor relationship between students."

Daniil Chechurov:

What do you want to accomplish in the role?

"I want to accomplish and partake in all required tasks for a school captain including leading assemblies and organising events with diligence and excellency. But aside from that I want to serve the students and staff of our cohort and wider school community, exceeding the role description and going above and beyond what is required, for their needs and comfort. "

What do you want to do after Year 12? 

"I’d like to seek a tertiary pathway in mathematics and engineering at university to broaden possible career paths in the future. However, delving into fields such as actuarial science, economics and data science would all be challenging and gratifying career options. I would also like to continue with tennis, playing at a competitive regional level."

Connor Green:

What traits do you believe are most important to leadership, and why?

"I believe being kind, and understanding is most important in leadership as a kind leader is a good leader."

How do you hope to be remembered by your fellow students?

"I hope to be remembered as a Captain of the people's interest."
