This week’s student leaders are from Oatlands Public School. Their motto is Our Best Always. Read their Q&A:
1. What is unique about your school?
Kristina Dang, C: We are a small school, but we have a big spirit. We are enthusiastic and respectful and we give everything our best shot.
Merujen Chelvakaumaran, C: The teachers: they are kind, friendly, and always trustworthy.
Kathy Kim, VC: Even though our school is small, we have a giant oval and a big playground area.
Daniel Khan, VC: We have a massive oval to hold many people. We have a school choir, dance group, netball team and PSSA AFL team.
2. What do you want to do when you leave school?
Kristina Dang, C: I want to become either an interior designer or a netball player.
Merujen Chelvakumaran, C: I want to go to Baulkham Hills High School and be a professional cricket player.
Kathy Kim, VC: I want to study about doctors/nurses. Since I was young, my parents wanted to be a doctor, so I want to achieve that goal.
Daniel Khan, VC: I want to be a successful soccer superstar.
3. Why do you think being a school leader is important?
Kristina Dang, C: Because school leaders are role models and an inspiration to younger children, and they are always glad to give a helping hand to students who are unhappy, hurt or lonely.
Merujen Chelvakumaran, C: Because you can lead the school, and this will help you in the future.
Kathy Kim, VC: We are role models of younger students and representing our school.
Daniel Khan, VC: If there were no school leaders, there would be no person to look up to. Children will not behave properly because there would be no role models.
4. If you were the principal what would you introduce?
Kristina Dang, C: I would introduce a giant chocolate fountain with sprinkles and marshmallows on the side. This will be a reward to well behaved students who have worked hard in class. They could eat all day and relax in such a treat, but of course they would have to burn the calories they gain, so I would also introduce unlimited sport time. Girls can shoot netballs and boys can kick soccer balls. I don't know about you but I think I could be the ultimate principal... (just kidding!)
Merujen Chelvakumaran, C: I would like to introduce an awesome, action-packed roller coaster, which goes through all the classrooms and drops off every student that rides it at there wanted destination.
Kathy Kim, VC: I would introduce a sport land at our school so we can get more fit and healthy! There are soccer balls, basketballs and giant courts as well! If we had a sport land, we would've been the sporty school!! And come first in the cross-country and athletics carnivals. :)
Daniel Khan, VC: I would have a professional soccer field with an official referee. All 5/6 Heptathlon students will have free tickets to the 2014 Brasil World Cup (No teachers - best seats).
