Introducing our 2018 College Captains

2018 Arizona Durbin

Arizona Durbin, Social Justice Captain, East Campus

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

I started St. Peter’s College back in 2013, when I was in year 7

Tell us about your family?

There are 7 people in my family- my mum, my step-dad, my two younger twin brothers who attend St. Peter's Coillege, my little younger brother and my older sister who finished her Year 12 studies at St. Peter's College in 2016, and also my cat and my dog.

Tell us about your other interests?

I enjoy eating, going to the city and visiting art galleries, photography, creating art and hanging out with my friends. I love meeting new people and discovering new places in Melbourne’s inner-city suburbs.

Year 12 Studies:

At St. Peter’s College I am currently studying Ethics & Morality, English, Further Maths, Business Management, Art and Drama. I attend Study Hub if I don’t have work on Wednesdays and study mostly English and Maths.

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

In Year 11 I completed units 3 & 4 Geography and it was good to prepare myself for Year 12.

but what I do have, I give to you

What does this mean to you?

To me, this is means to give what you have or can without expecting anything back, it doesn’t have to be much because it’s the giving that really matters most.

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

As Social Justice Captain I will spread this message, and give as much to the school as possible as they have given me everything and made me who I am today. I will teach those who are enthusiastic to learn to give without expecting anything back because that’s a big part of social justice; giving what you have and helping others and that comes from the heart- it isn’t something people do because they feel they have to.

What are your goals for 2018?

For yourself in your role?

My goal is to get more students involved in Social Justice within East Campus, I feel at the moment it is hard to get people involved and I want to raise more awareness to issues not just within the world, but within our school and the local community. I wish to have a team of students that are keen to help me this year and they can carry on the enthusiasm once I finish this year.

For yourself as a Year 12 student?

I would like to be able to work to the best of my ability towards my goals and make sure I accomplish them as much as I can, I would like to have a fantastic final year of my school and have as much fun as possible while keeping that personal-work-school life. I want to look back on my last year as the best, with no regrets and I want to really step out of my comfort zone.

Personally?

I would like to find out who I am. I would love to take a giant step out of my comfort zone. This year I would like to spend more time with friends and family and keep those around me close to me. I also want to volunteer a bit more than I do because it’s a good feeling when you know you are doing good for others.

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

I would like people to know that I was there for them and if anyone needed help or to talk about anything that they felt comfortable talking to me. I hope to leave a legacy of compassion and service towards others, I hope to inspire those to go out and do good in the community.

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

I either would like to be a Flight Attendant or to study Hotel and Resorts Management at William Angliss Institute. I also want to travel and be with friends and family.

What are your long term life ambitions and aspirations?

Travel, work in either Tourism or Hospitality/Hotel and Resorts Management areas and be successful, put 110% into everything I do, continue to strengthen my faith, get married and have a family of my own.

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

St. Peter’s College is like a second home to me, we’re all one big family and I have so much pride in what we have become and how much we have all grown together. Never be afraid to speak out and do what is right, no matter what.
