Captain America. Captain Deviss. Captain Hook. Even Captain Underpants. They are all captains, but they aren’t the captains you’ll be voting for today.Good morning teachers and students. For those who don’t know me my name is Gabriella Zarglis.
Today, I will be talking to you why I would like to be a school captain of Saint Francis Xavier’s in this coming year.Before I continue I would like to ask a question. Who dislikes homework here? I definitely do. I would love to come up here and say things like: no homework for the rest of this year or school’s out! But unfortunately, I can’t.But that doesn’t stop me from having other great ideas. For example, everyone loves mufti days. We can have more mufti days, and like any other, we bring a gold coin donation.
The gold coin donation leads me to another great idea.Many students complain about the canteen. I don’t doubt you do to. From the money we raise from the mufti days, we can use it to upgrade the canteen a bit. For a start, the canteen can supply more food for children on Fridays. We only have popcorn and ice blocks. Why not add some chips to the menu? How about some healthy in it? Yoghurt or fruit smoothies would do.Pizza is pretty much everybody’s favourite food.
What if we have pizza days twice a term. I see everybody is sitting up a little straighter. If I become school captain the school will be able to have more regular pizza days. The school can buy pizzas with the money we raise from the canteen. Everyone is part of a club. It could be a sports club or an art club.
It could even be a friendship club. The list is endless it could be a cooking club, a… blah blah blah blah blah. Hey that’s a good name for a club! The blah blah club. No? Anyways our school doesn’t have many clubs. It has a drama club, an ITC group anything else? If I am voted school captain Saint Francis Xaviers will have as many groups as it needs and wants.
We can have a sports club that plays any type of sports the children in the club want. They can meet down on the bottom playground once a week at lunch while the kindergartens and Year 1’s play on the top playground. If students want a club they can write it down and put it in the box the school must have if I am voted a leader in our school.If you have an idea that will make the school better, write your ideas on sticky notes that will be kept next to the box. Also a pen will be provided if needed. The box will be kept in the office.
I know many students will come up with great ideas. Did you know studies show that children are much more creative than boring old adults? I’m looking at you teachers.
