2020 Student Leaders

College Captain

Savannah Brand

Hello everyone!

My name is Savannah Brand and I am a Year 12 student that enjoys performing, science and Mandarin. I started at Hazel Glen College in 2016 and since then, I have aspired to be Hazel Glen’s first female College Captain. I was drawn to this role when it was first described to me as the position for someone who fully immerses themselves in College life, strives to ensure the College is a comfortable and happy space for students and teachers as well as being an embodiment of Hazel Glen’s 4 R’s and Fish Philosophy.

Over the course of my time here at Hazel Glen, I have further developed my leadership and communication skills through a variety of different opportunities that Hazel Glen has to offer. As Hazel Glen College’s female College Captain for 2020, I strive to be an approachable person that works to create an environment in which teachers and students feel happy, heard and included. I feel greatly honoured to have been given this role and am excited for the hard work and dedication that 2020 will bring in order to reach both my personal and College goals!

College Captain

Seth Peachey

My name is Seth Peachey and I am currently undertaking Year 12.

I have been appointed as Hazel Glen’s College Captain for 2020. I’ve been attending this College since Year 9 and have fallen in love with it ever since. My subjects for 2020 are English, Mathematics, Business Management, Legal Studies and Mandarin. Being highly involved with the opportunities that Hazel Glen offers, such as the College Production: The Sound of Music, and the many clubs offered like the Sustainability Club, I envisioned the potential openings that Hazel Glen College could offer for all its students and thus the aspiration of College Captain erupted.

Since being appointed, I hope to achieve a place that promotes the diversity of all its students and furthermore ignite passion within them. Even though I’ve been a part of the Student Representative Council and an active member of the community, I’m nervous to be the first College Captain of Hazel Glen College, but with such a supportive leadership team, I know I can make a positive impact to this school.

College Vice Captain

Jackson Cox

My name is Jackson Cox.

To have such an opportunity presented to ones self is too good of a responsibility to pass up. After moving to Melbourne in late 2017 I had developed high aspirations to create positive change in the environments around me. This idea led me to joining the College leadership team over the last two years, while also applying myself in a diverse array of co-curricular roles. When I was informed of the implementation of the College Captains, I knew it was an opportunity to strive for as I was indebted to the College and community around me for reforming my character and morals into something much more.

To be so fortunate in being selected as Vice Captain, it has become my goal to bring about the best of College spirit, academic performance and wellbeing amongst all students and peers, and to support the likeness of my fellow Vice Captain as well as the College Captains.

College Vice Captain

Julie Williams

My name is Julie Williams and I have been a part of Hazel Glen College since Year 7 in 2015.

I have enjoyed playing for the Hazel Glen Netball Club and other sports throughout my life that have helped to develop my leadership skills and why I applied for the role as a College Captain. I have been an ongoing member of the Hazel Glen College leadership team since my first year at the College. With aspiring dreams and goals in the field of law and leadership I was over the moon to be presented with this role as one of the first College Vice Captains. Being given this role got me reflecting on my very first moments in the College, I can still remember my first day of Year 7, how I felt, who my friends were and how much I’ve grown up since then.

I hope to make my final year at the College the most enjoyable for those beginning their journeys at Hazel Glen, the ones who are continuing on, and the ones whose academic journey is coming to a close. 2020 will definitely be a year to remember and I anticipate that the future captains will follow and create traditions to make the years at Hazel Glen the best years.

Middle School Captain

Lujain Akkoub

Hello Everyone my name is Lujain and I’m in year 8 and I will be your middle school captain for 2020.

I moved to Hazel Glen College in year 4 back in 2016. My hobbies and interests are : listening to music, sketching , playing sports and Netflix binging. I love hanging out with my friends and family. My favourite subjects are drama, art as well as debating in humanities. I’ve always wanted to be a role model which is what made this role stand out for me. By helping to lead students onto the right path for their schooling year, I’ll be able to meet new people who will help me with my leadership path by helping me see new perspectives. Since I moved to Hazel Glen College, I have met supportive people who have encouraged me to try new things that I never knew I was capable of trying. I have always participated in all school house events and excursions, I have also participated in some school sporting teams which helped me grow my social skills. I got to meet new people that I have seen around but never got a chance to talk and get to know them. Thanks to the unlimited support from my family, friends, peers and teachers, I have been able to embrace the leadership skills inside me and strengthen them, as well as add onto them. Earning this role is such an honour to me. I would especially like to thank my teachers and very special best friend.

I can’t wait for a great year in 2020 where I get to work with Cooper, Abbey and Cohen. I’m certain I can grow my connections and understanding towards the school.

Middle School Captain

Cooper Spark

Hello, my name is Cooper Spark I am the middle school captain for 2020.

I can’t wait for the adventures the 2020 will hold for our school. I have been in Hazel Glen College for 1 year and have had a wonderful, successful year. I have been involved in many things such as, all house events, school excursions/incursions, A program that is called ADA (athlete development academy), Beachley house captain for 2019, regionals for cross country and some school sporting teams. They are football, cricket and hockey. I made regionals for cricket and hockey but unfortunately lost. The past year has built up many of my personality traits which as made me a better person. I am grateful for having a chance to be a role model for middle school as that is my strength. I can easily make friends and am a supportive person.

I can’t wait for 2020 as it will have it bumps through the road but it is going to be a fun year for me,  with leading the middle school to the right path and the right decisions. I hope to make a great impact in the middle school community as we are family. I can’t wait to work with Lujain and collaborate with each other. Bring on 2020!
