Good morning teachers and students my name is Dilen and I’m running to be one of your house captains for next year.

I realise that its a privilege to have the honour to serve you, my fellow peers but I’m confident that I’ll be a suitable candidate. I promise to work hard to be the affective leader that you would be proud of in the school. I feel like I am a positive student, a well mannered and quite an approachable student. I will assist teachers and students in any way to the best of my abilities and take my peers ideas and queries down and pass them on.

I would like to start by explaining to you what this position means to be. A house captain needs to be someone who can represent the school in its core values Faith, Courage and Compassion.

To me the role of an house captain is more than a badge, popularity or a fancy title. But a chance in representing my fellow peers, include, motivating,  influencing and directing people in a right and steady direction. It also includes building stronger relationships with others. It provides an opportunity to learn, identify and display effective communication skills. I also accept responsibility for serving others to get the mission of the team accomplished.

So please vote for me and show your trust in me and I promise I won’t let you down.
Thank you for listening to my speech!!
