2020 Year 12 students Lily Bragg and Bella Mott express their leadership as School Captains at The Glennie School through community and connection. “While embracing the theme, be so good you can’t be ignored, we believe girls find their strength through connections, empowering them to build each other up,” said Lily.

Through relationship, service and spirit initiatives planned throughout the year, Lily and Bella are ensuring girls are consistently connected. Facilitating regular story sharing sessions, extending compassion through service to others and empowering peers to find their spirit in academia, sport, music, art and volunteering is how these Captains will be remembered well after their final year at Glennie.

“COVID-19 has changed how we expected our year to go, and it has been disappointing. However, it has opened the opportunity for us to grow as individuals and as a team in ways we never imagined. We’re finding new and creative ways to help encourage the girls to stay positive and feel connected,” said Bella.

When the school year ends, Lily hopes to further her studies in Health Sciences, with a preference for Allied Science helping disabled children. Bella is completing a Traineeship in Childcare and is keen to extend her skills in Drama and Acting. A role as an entertainer for sick children in the health care and childcare industries could be the perfect blend of both options.
