Two experienced young leaders hope to become role models and create a positive school environment at St Mary’s College Broome, as they begin their journey as head boy and head girl.

Fynn Stokes and Tamzyne Richardson feel honoured to be given the prestigious titles and plan to use their positions to influence a positive culture at the school.

Having taken on the role of captain for a number of sporting teams, as well as other leadership stints at the college, Fynn, 16, hopes to use his knowledge to set a good example for younger boys.

“I always aspired to be a leader of this school, especially for younger boys as there are less male teachers around to be role models for them,” he said.

“It is a privilege to be in this position and I will represent the school proudly at services and events.

“I am grateful that my peers voted me in; it felt really good and now I want to represent them well.”

Tamzyne, 17, said her main goal was to bring the entire school closer together.

“I want to increase the number of activities that the whole school community can participate in, because younger and older students can benefit from a strong connection,” she said. “I was given so much confidence when my peers wanted me to represent them, even though there were other candidates I know would also have done a terrific job.”

Tamzyne also has leadership experience at the college, mainly in the area of dance.
