2022 School Captains

Harper Harradine and Tehya Clarke are '100 percent' proud to be part of Dimboola Memorial Secondary College history after winning school captaincy roles for 2022. The pair will be the college's first all Indigenous team with Tehya following in the footsteps of her brother Kynan the schools first Indigenous captain.

Harper said being elected to the role by the student body was 'a real honour' “There's been a lot of great school captains here previously, so it's a real honour to be at the same level right now,” he said.

Tehya said being elected was 'a dream come true'. She is planning to attend University in Melbourne after graduation and is still deciding on her field of study. Harper said he hoped to pursue a role with Parks Victoria.

Both Tehya & Harper awarded Marrung Education Scholarships at a ceremony in Melbourne early this year.

Congratulations to both Tehya & Harper all the best for the future!
