38. The Leadership Journey of School Captains



Robert & Taylem were the 2020 School Captains at Central Coast Grammar School.

I have had the privilege of working with both Robert & Taylem over this past year. We have talked about so many things related to their leadership journey and their experiences as School Captains of one of the most prestigious schools on the Central Coast.

We wanted to bring this journey to life in a podcast episode to help other current and aspiring young school leaders, but also people working with young leaders to reflect on how we can work together to achieve great outcomes.

In saying that, I know through first hand experience of working with Robert & Taylem, how much our young people can open up our minds and help us older generations to view the world through a different lens.

The focus of our conversation today is learning from Robert and Taylem about their school leadership experience.

    Two eloquent and well adjusted young people, who know where they are going in life , and what preparations they have to make to ensure they will arrive at their destination.
    I’m sure they will make their mark on society in the future based on the quality of their replies to the questions in this interview, and their attitude to life in general.
    A well constructed interview matched only by well constructed answers.

      Thank you Mike. I agree – both Robert and Taylem will do very well in life if they continue on with the same mindset and determination they showed throughout their leadership year. Well done also on winning the $30 Jangler Gift Card being the first to submit the correct answer to the question. Enjoy!

    So great to hear such strong, capable and broad thinking young people speak. It certainly creates confidence that our future is in great hands with leaders such as these two.

      Thank you Jo. I agree. Both Robert and Taylem are impressive young leaders. Much more to come from both of them as well.
