Laura May and Lytana King-Togia are the School Captains of Our Lady of the Southern Cross College this year.

Laura strives to participate in all aspects of the school, with academic and cultural pursuits strong areas of achievement. She has received multiple diligence, encouragement and excellence awards throughout the years and has been rewarded for her participation in school musicals, choir and Opti-Minds. Last year, Laura received an Academic Distinction award for her overall academic performance.

She says there is much she hopes to achieve this year and will focus on developing friendships between grades. ”I would love for my legacy to be cemented as a Captain for the students.”

Laura has been a member of the Student Representative Council for four consecutive years. Her love of planning and running events motivated her to want to be a College Captain. “This is a position I’ve dreamt of being in since Grade 8,” she said.

An active member of the sporting community, Lytana enjoys playing Rugby Union and Rugby League, competing for the Dalby Wheatman Rugby Club. He made the Queensland Two Open School Boys Rugby Union team and will compete in the National Rugby Union championships later. This year, Lytana is completing a School Based Apprenticeship in Carpentry with local business SUPA Constructions. He hopes to achieve good results and is looking forward to enjoying his final year at school with his class mates. ”I hope I can make a positive difference in our school and community as School Captain, build new relationships with school students and unite our college culturally,” Lytana said.
