The School Captains are role models for our school. They play an important part in organising and presenting at school events. Two School Captains and six School Leaders are elected through a preferential election process at the end of each school year. The boy and girl with the most votes are elected school captains. Their first role is to emcee the Year 6 graduation ceremony in the last week of the school year.
Our school leadership team have the important job of setting up, running and emceeing our fortnightly whole school assemblies. They also formulate a performance for each assembly that aligns with our school social and emotional learning program, Bounce Back.
House Captains and Leaders
Garran Primary has four sporting houses: Dennis, Palmer, Gilmore and Hudson. They are all named after famous Australian Poets (C.J. Dennis, Nettie Palmer, Wilfred Hudson and Dame Mary Gilmore). House Captains and Leaders are elected by students each year. These elected leaders then assist their house during the 3 major sporting carnivals being Athletics, Cross Country and Swimming.
Each week all students across the school have opportunities of collecting ‘Eddy the Teddy’ tickets. Children demonstrating the values of the school may receive a ticket from a teacher who has observed great work, effort or achievement. These tickets are posted by children in their ‘house’ mailbox. Before each school assembly these tickets are counted. The house with the most tickets is announced as the winning house. Points contribute from the carnivals and Eddy the Teddy tickets towards the winning house at the end of the year.
Sporting houses help in building school spirit, with children eagerly participating in school events to support their sporting house. Children wear their house colours with pride and enjoy all activities relating to their sporting houses.
