Interview with our School Captain

Name – Tiana Massin
Title – School Captain Western Campus
Program – Rowville General Excellence

1. As school captain, what are you most excited about this year?

As a school captain, I am most excited to meet and be involved with students from across all year levels. I’m looking forward to working alongside the leadership team to continue to further develop our House system, to put forth my ideas and make contributions to the school. I’m also very excited about the planning of numerous school events and activities that are to come during the year.

2. What do you love about Rowville Secondary College?

Rowville Secondary College has always been a place that I feel welcomed and as though I belong. One of the things I love about RSC is the fact that there are many teachers whom I know that I can trust and go to for any reason, whether it be school related or not. Another great thing I love about the school are the several opportunities that are provided for students throughout the year, whether it be interschool sports, the college production, book club and more, there is always something for everyone.

3. What changes would you like to put in place to make RSC better for all students?

To make RSC an even better place, I would like to introduce more opportunities for student voice. This includes not only students that hold a leadership position within the college, but seeking input and feedback from all students about the sorts of ideas and activities that could potentially be introduced during the school year, or possible changes in the way things currently run at school. These sorts of ideas could be submitted anonymously, or could form part of group discussions during Learning Mentor sessions.

4. How do you feel about this year’s school theme ‘Respect’ – what do you think you will do day-to-day to action this?

I believe that this theme is of great importance, as respect amongst all students and staff creates a more positive learning environment, where there are healthy student-teacher relationships and students can thrive and be the best they can be. There are many simple ways to show respect, and one in which I will put into action is to be friendly towards my teachers and peers, and being respectful of the fact that everyone is different and has their own styles of learning.
