Welcome to 2017 at Newcastle Grammar School. We, Charlotte and Zac, are very excited for what this year will entail. We feel very honoured to have been chosen for this opportunity as School Captains and see the role as a privilege and responsibility to serve the Newcastle Grammar School community and uphold its values and commitments.
As Captains, we hope to lead by example and demonstrate how approaching school with an open-mind and participating in as much as possible will really benefit everybody’s NGS experience. Newcastle Grammar School has so many opportunities on offer for every student, it is simply crazy not to make the most of them.
Throughout our time in this position, we aim to be respectful and diligent leaders who lead by example and are able to provide support to all students whenever needed. We intend to raise funds for various charities throughout the year, play an active role in engaging the students with the wider community and helping to encourage them to become active global citizens.
We thank you for the valuable contributions every member of the NGS community makes and we hope you are looking forward to 2017 as much as we are.
— Charlotte Thomas and Zachary Perry (School Captains)
