Hi, my name is Chelsie Collard. I am the Sport and Laver Captain for 2017. I would describe myself as an approachable, enthusiastic and confident individual who is ready for new challenges, whatever they may be. This year as a leader, I intend to encourage and support my peers who do or do not involve themselves in sporting activities. I am working hard to make this year an enjoyable one for students by introducing new and exciting ideas to embrace the Carwatha sporting culture.
I have been at Carwatha College since Year 8 where my most memorable experience involves expanding my friendship groups throughout my time here and meeting new people from different backgrounds. In 2016 I completed two Year 12 subjects, which included Legal ¾ and Psychology ¾ whilst this year I will be completing four subjects, which are ¾ Literature, Health and Human Development, History Revolutions and Product and Design Technology. Following Year 12, I hope to go on to university to study Psychology taking my first steps towards my dream career. When I’m not at school or studying, I enjoy working and playing field hockey. My extra- curricular activities have allowed me to expand my leadership skills and express my enjoyment of being part of a team while embracing my competitive nature. I am very excited to have a leadership position this year and take advantage of all the opportunities offered to me whilst contributing and working closely with the whole school community as the year continues.
Sports Captain & Laver House Captain
My name is William Nguyen and I am the Cuthbert House Captain for 2017. Last year I studied 3 VCE 3/4 subjects including Informatics, English and Vietnamese. This year I will be studying Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics and Physics as I am striving to become an Engineer.
I have begun my education at Carwatha College in Year 7, taking on the role of Form Captain for my class. This role exposed me to the responsibilities and skills needed to become a successful leader and gave me many opportunities to work alongside other leaders. In 2015, I was chosen as a Year 10 Leader for my year level and currently, I am the College Council Representative. I feel very honoured to have served and continue to serve in these positions of responsibility where I continue to develop and build on my skills.
In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, playing sports and other outdoor activities such as jogging and bike riding. Other than that, I am also very interested in computers and technology.
A memorable moment from my time at Carwatha was when I was given the chance to work with the grade 1/2’s as part of a reading program in 2014. It was a wonderful experience to be able to interact with other members of the school community and support our younger students’ education. The group of children who I worked with were very eager to learn and had a great attitude so it was a very unforgettable experience.
It was very important for me to be part of the leadership team in my final year of school as I wanted to be more involved in the school community, being able to play an active role in many aspects of the College. Within this role, I am able to build my organisation and communication skills, as I focus on learning and developing the qualities of a leader. I would like to organise fun activities for our students such as lunch time games or other requested activities as well as being able to aid them with their studies.
If I can give advice to our younger students as they progress through their studies, I will recommend for them to put themselves out there by applying for leadership positions as well as take every opportunity to contribute by doing other extra-curricular activities such as SRC, volunteering and participating in music nights, productions and interschool sports. Students will find that they will benefit so much whilst contributing and interacting with so many different people having lots of fun.
Cuthbert House Captain
Hi, my name is Prithviram, the captain of the house, Bradman, in 2017. I made my first appearance at Carwatha College in 2012, to commence my higher education with a lot of nerves. Time has flown quick and while it sometimes feels like my second day at school, I am standing perplexed as this year marks the last year of my schooling.
Through my journey, I have met with amazing people of vast diversities and made countless invaluable memories which I’m forever grateful for. There is no one memory that I value more than the others, as all of them are very close to my heart. However, breaking the memories down to moments can make way to some favourite moments. One of my favourite moments in my time at this school was winning an interschool sports game of soccer and brining victory back to our school.
Looking at my final year at Carwatha, I aim to complete the rest of my subjects successfully which consist are Chemistry, Physics, English and Specialist Mathematics. The V3 program was unbelievably beneficial to the students of this school as some students including myself completed two or three 3&4 subjects in Year 11. I myself successfully completed Mathematical Methods and Informatics in 2016.
In the future, I am looking forward to enter the engineering field but additionally have the line of medicine as a backup. Away from school, I am what you can expect of a normal teenager, always hungry and always sleepy. My interest in cricket is unexplainable and I play for the North Dandenong CC. My divine interest in sports encouraged me to consider being the house captain in 2017. Co-incidentally, I am the house captain of a house named after a cricket player! I aim to lift my house to the next dimension, not only in terms of the ladder board, but to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for fellow Bradmans to participate, but most importantly to enjoy. Furthermore, I would like to encourage the students of Carwatha to energetically participate in house events as they provide a platform to make spectacular memories.
Bradman House Captain
My name is Viktoria Karkatzoulis and I am honoured to say that I am the Fraser house captain of Carwatha College 2017. The V3 program has given me the opportunity to complete units 3/4 of English, Maths Further and Biology a year ahead. This year I will be studying Maths Methods, Psychology, Greek and Media. I am happy to say that the V3 program has given me a significant advantage in my VCE studies.
I have been at Carwatha College since Year 7. My aspiration is to attend Monash University and undertake a Bachelor of Science degree to either become a criminologist or a biostatistician. I wanted to be a leader as I want to participate in as many events as possible and make my last year of school the most enjoyable. I also want to be a good role model for the younger year levels and lead my house colour to success.
I feel very privileged as I have made friends at Carwatha College, who I know, I will be friends with for a long time. My school has given me so many opportunities to learn, develop and excel and I feel a deep sense of pride to say that I'm a student at Carwatha. I begin my Year 12 journey feeling really excited and I cannot wait to get to know everyone in our school community. I am a very bubbly, energetic, quirky, friendly and loud individual so if you ever see me around school just say Hi!
