Shepparton East Primary School's leaders for 2014. At the front are vice-captains Anthony Damchev and Lauren McKenzie, and captains Emily Chalmers and Darby Sutherland. At the back are school principal Trent McCrae and Federal Member for Murray Sharman Stone.

Getting more students involved in fundraising activities and music are high on the agenda for Shepparton East Primary School leaders.

Four school captains, eight junior school councillors and eight house captains were yesterday presented with their leadership badges.

School captain Darby Sutherland, 11, said he wanted to provide a positive example for younger students.

‘‘I want to show the way for young kids and get them more involved in school events,’’ he said.

Fellow school captain Emily Chalmers said she hoped to involve more children in choir and music.

But improvements to the basketball nets was also a top priority.

‘‘I want to get nets in the basketball and netball rings,’’ she said.

Vice-captains Anthony Damchev and Lauren McKenzie said they wanted to involve the younger students in school activities.

Principal Trent McCrae said there was a rigorous selection process for school captains.

‘‘Students vote and the top four male and female candidates are interviewed,’’ Mr McCrae said.

He said junior councillors and house captains were chosen through peer votes.
