Our Student Leaders

Our student leaders form a vital part of our student body, acting as a liaison between students and the school leadership team. Their role is to support their fellow students, teachers and help to organise student events throughout the year.

Joseph scott

G’Day everyone, I am Joseph Scott School Captain of Monterey Secondary College along with Lydia and Leela for 2018.

I have done all my secondary schooling here, so to be able to be Captain for my last year is a great honour.  I have always felt Monterey has given me many opportunities and now I am able to give back to the school. I am a VCAL student doing my second year of a School Based Apprenticeship in Plumbing. This involves me spending three days at school two days on the job and once a month I do a week at TAFE. I have a lot on this year but I looking forward to the challenge.  When I am not doing all this I really enjoy Photography, Bike riding and going to the beach. We have an exciting year with the opening of the new building. I believe with great teachers, excellent programs and modern learning spaces Monterey Secondary College has a great future.

I’m Lydia Sonnet and I am one of the College Captains for 2018. I feel a great honour and privilege to have been chosen as a College Captain and intend to make the most of my role. I have been at Monterey Secondary College since day one of Year Seven back in 2013 and have lived in the Frankston North community my whole life. I am especially passionate about our school and very excited to spend my last year in our new and improved school. A big reason why I love Monterey is the caring people and environment.  A little be about myself: I am a ballroom dancer, I enjoy films and I love to spend time with my friends and family. I have enjoyed my time at Monterey and am sad that it is coming to an end. My hope for the future is to attend Australian Catholic University to peruse studies in Speech Pathology. I am very excited about this year and I know our college is going to go places in the future.


leela pEIRCE

My name is Leela Peirce and I am one of the 2018 Monterey Secondary College Captains I would just like to say a bit about myself: I have been at Monterey since I was in Year Seven and although I left in Year Ten, I came back to my school because it is like a second home to me. I love reading and writing and my favourite subjects are English and Legal studies. In the future, I want to become a teacher and teach these two subjects. My family has been at this school for 20 years and Monterey is apart of the Peirce name, this school is apart of my family and I hope to one day send my children to this amazing school. This school gives students amazing opportunities and I love it. If you ever feel the need to approach me do so even if I have a book in my hand I will greet you with a smile.
