Celeste Hill, Liturgy Captain, West Captain

 

When did you start your studies at St. Peter’s College?

I started at St. Peter’s College in Year 7.

Tell us about your family?

There are 5 people in my family, my Mum, Dad, older Brother, younger Sister and my dog. But of course, my family also consists of my Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles and cousins and we are all very close.

Tell us about your other interests?

I love music, singing, performing and I use my spare time to continue to learn guitar and write songs. I enjoy being at church with the youth group and youth Choir and spending time with these people who have the same beliefs as mine.

Year 12 Studies:

At St. Peter’s College I am currently studying English, Biology, Music, Further Maths, Health and Human Development and Madjitil Moorna.

Have you already completed any of your VCE Studies prior to this year?

Last year I completed units 3 & 4 Psychology and enjoyed it a lot.

2018 College Annual Theme      

but what I do have, I give to you

What does this mean to you?  

For me this year’s theme of ‘but what I do have, I give to you’ is what I think Jesus would be saying to all of us. I also see it as what Jesus would want us to do for others. Even though we may not have a lot, we should all give the little that we have to others. Not only does this motto have its religious values but it also means a lot to me as a leader. Being a leader at St. Peter’s College I want to give my gifts and talents to the school. It also means giving without holding back and giving selflessly with an open heart.

How will you live this statement throughout the year in your role?

I will give all the time I have to my role, to the school and to my peers. I aim to give all I can to help bring people closer to God in a different way that many people haven’t yet experienced. I hope I can live out this statement simply by being a person people can come to, by a kind gesture or even just by a smile.

What are your goals for 2018?

For yourself in your role?

This year I hope to make people enjoy being part of religious celebrations by making them fun and youthful. To me it is important that as we are a community of young adults, our liturgies and masses should be celebrated in a way that is suited towards our age. I want to help people realise that God isn’t some untouchable, out of reach imaginary friend, but a person who is by your side every step of the day.

For yourself as a Year 12 student?

I want to make the most of year 12, by doing the best I can in all my school work, making new friends and enjoy year 12 to the best that I can.

Personally?

I would like to strengthen my friendships and relationships and I would like to start taking my music seriously and try to make something out of it.

What would you like your legacy to be for St. Peter’s College?

I would like people to remember me as a girl who was friendly, kind, caring and funny. If even only one person feels more accepted or connected to our School community or has a sense of belonging I feel that would be a legacy I’d be proud of leave behind.

What are your immediate life ambitions and aspirations once you complete your studies at St. Peter’s College?

I want to go to university and study something along the lines of nursing or medical research or anything to do with biology and life sciences.

What are your long term life ambitions and aspirations?

I aspire to have a career that I enjoy, to be happy and make music and perform. 

In one sentence what would you like to say to your fellow students about your Pride in your College?

Life at school is what you put into it. The more you step out with courage, the more you’ll belong. Be brave!
