2022 College Captains

Hey there! We are Ayra Dayao and Raia Jose, your 2022 College Captains at Hoppers Crossing Secondary College. We are super excited to be working with this year’s Student Representative Council and to start the year off determined to kick goals.

Through our time spent at the College, as well as activities like Wakakirri and Sports, we have obtained quality leadership skills and experience in order to help us thrive and accomplish in the role of College Captain. We hope to work with the College community to embody the College values of respect, responsibility, strong work ethic and cooperation, in all aspects of our lives. As College Captains, we aim to display each of these qualities to the best of our abilities so that we may be the leaders that the College deserves.

I, Ayra Dayao, have previously been with the Student Representative Council in 2020 among other roles such as House Captain. I aspire to inspire both the present and future leaders of the school and wider community during my time as College Captain. Additionally, I would also like to work collaboratively with the Student Representative Council to create an engaging environment for our peers at Hoppers Crossing Secondary College in order to make up for time lost over the past 2 years.

I, Raia Jose, was welcomed to the Student Representative Council in 2021 entering the role as College Vice Captain. Through this experience I was able to gain leadership skills and work with my peers to be the student voices of the college, to improve and create change collectively within our school community. This year I hope to continue this by fostering an SRC and school culture where students feel supported and appreciated.


Our aim for 2022 is to recapture the student morale that we had lost during remote learning. We recognise that student morale was significantly reduced over the past two years due to the implications of the pandemic. We want to run a range of events and ongoing activities on site to encourage students to reconnect with the college. Specifically, we look forward to promoting participation in face-to-face events like Spirit Week, alongside the growth of new clubs such as The Human Rights Club.

As for the Student Representative Council as a whole, our priority is to ensure that the student body takes pride in being a part of the college community as well as feel empowered to seek change in order to improve the college experience. We are keen to start working alongside the student body to develop an environment that caters to all students’ abilities and interests.

We are excited to pursue our roles as College Captains at Hoppers Crossing Secondary College, a place that has given us the tools to succeed in our everyday lives while providing us with an unforgettable experience.
