Murchison Primary School leaders have been officially presented leadership badges at a whole of school assembly by the Member for Euroa, Annabelle Cleeland.
Students spoke about the importance of upholding values such as responsibility, respect and supporting one another in the closeknit school community.
“Murchison Primary is in incredibly good hands with their team of student leaders,” Ms Cleeland said.
“School captains Sadie and Grace displayed their wonderful values and will provide invaluable support to their peers through the year.
“While there is a team of captains and leaders, there are so many students throughout the school who display leadership characteristics every day.”
Following the assembly Ms Cleeland took the Year 6 students for a class on government and explained the process of preferential voting.
“The Year 6 students were so engaged, intelligent and asked some insightful questions about how government and voting operates,” Ms Cleeland said.
“We conducted a mock preferential vote of our favourite athlete with Ariarne Titmus coming out on top after four rounds of preferences.
“The future of Murchison is strong with such a bright student body and I can’t wait to meet more of our region’s upcoming leaders as the year progresses.”
