2022 CAPTAIN’S VOICE
ISABELLA SHELTON SCHOOL CAPTAIN
Q. As a School Captain, what legacy do you think you have left for future Glennie girls? A. I think I have left a legacy of enthusiasm, positivity and support. I tried to connect with the younger girls and I also tried to show that I am only human and have vulnerabilities and bad days. I hope I promoted the idea that all these facets are part of life and that nobody has to be perfect. I also think words and stories can mean a lot to people, so my legacy is hopefully one that encourages girls to speak about their stories and their beliefs. Q. What does your immediate future hold? A. In 2023, I will be studying the Bachelor of Psychological Science at UQ and living at a college in Brisbane. I want to be involved in the performing arts at college and keep up with some dancing. I hope to try new things, join clubs and experience living away from my family.

Q. What does it mean to be a Glennie girl?
A. To be a Glennie girl is to be yourself. It means having the courage to reach out for help and ask questions inside and outside of class, treating your fellow students - no matter what grade - with respect and compassion, using your moral compass as a guide and being supportive and enthusiastic at interschool events, even if it’s daunting and you think you look silly. It means showing vulnerability and finding support and standing up for your own beliefs. Q. What was your favourite subject at Glennie and why? A. My favourite subjects were French and French Extension because language fascinates me and I always felt so proud of myself when I remembered a word or formed a sentence. I love how learning languages is such a challenging and ongoing learning experience. We had a lot of freedom in French Extension to study what we wanted to and languages, in general, are applicable in real life and my dreams of travelling. The French department is passionate and always willing to help us with our French, especially when we wanted to relearn a grammatical structure for the third time. Q. As an active Performing Arts student, what do you enjoy about performing? A. I enjoyed the social aspect of the Performing Arts, as well as how each ensemble, choir or production I am in is a team. We all help each other and support each other to improve day by day. You can never predict how each rehearsal will go, just like how you never know what the results will be. Performing Arts is about listening and cooperating with your fellow students, as well as steady self- improvement that comes with practice and experience. It is truly fulfilling and heart-warming and I’m so grateful for the Glennie performing arts program.
