Meet Our SLC: Music Captain and Visual Arts Captain

Music Captain: Lucy Dal Molin

Why did you apply for a leadership position?

I’ve always looked up to the older music girls, especially the Music Captain since joining the Music Program in Year 5. The music community has always been such a welcoming environment for me, and I have always felt encouraged and supported there. It has always been a goal of mine to be a part of that and sustain that sense of community for the younger girls. 

What do you hope to achieve in your new leadership role?

I really want to encourage participation from the younger year groups and encourage girls to join the Music Department and strengthen the community we already have. I also hope to integrate music into the wider school community through collaboration with other departments and Student Leadership Council leaders and possibly even with other schools.

What experience do you bring to this role?

I’ve been a part of the Music Department my entire time at Santa Maria, through my involvement in choir since Year 5, and orchestra. Through these groups and in Music classes, I’ve been able to grow my skills as a musician and get to know the other members of the Music Department. 

Who is a leader you admire and why?

I really admire the previous Music Captain, Clare Perrott for what she brought to the role. Her active involvement in so many music groups is inspiring and something I’d like to strive for, as well as her supportive nature towards everyone in the Music Department. Her work as Music Captain inspires me to continue to become more involved and active to help further grow this community. During my time as Music Captain, I hope to leave as much of a lasting impact on the music community as Clare did, and all the previous Year 12s.

Art Captain: Natalie Loach

Why did you apply for a leadership position?

I applied for Visual Arts Captain because I’ve really admired the Art community at the College. Art and creativity have been such an important part of my life, whether it be an outlet when I’m stressed or a means to express myself. I’ve been really inspired to take up this position because I would love to bring art into other people’s lives and continue the visual arts traditions at the College.

What do you hope to achieve in your new leadership role?

In my position, I am committed to bringing art events not only to the girls in the Visual Arts Department but also to the wider school. I want to engage more students and show them all what the Department has to offer because we really do have amazing courses and teachers!

What experience do you bring to this role?

I have been studying Visual Arts at the College since Year 5, and I actively participate in events in and outside the College. In this role, I promise that I will bring all my passion and make sure I put 110% into all I do. I will also draw on the amazing talent of the Year 11 and 12 art students.

Who is a leader that you admire and why?

I really admire the artist, Frida Kahlo; she was a Mexican painter in the early 1900s who defied all odds and became one of the most well-known artists. When Kahlo was 18, she got into a bus accident that left her physically disabled and during her time in hospital she began to paint. Her paintings explored disability, gender, and culture. Her bravery to stand up and show the world who she is has inspired thousands of people to stand up and do the same. I really admire her bravery and her art.
