The 2019 Brisbane State High School Captains Bria Skordou and Joseph Rangiah, and Vice-Captains Joanne Hung and Advaith Suresh, have an extensive range of achievements between them including leadership, academic and sporting endeavours.

It is the Captains’ aim this year to unite the school, further developing the spirit of State High. They wish to celebrate diversity in public education, supporting what makes each student different, and acknowledging the silent achievers. Bria has represented State High in a range of extra-curricular activities as a Volleyball Captain, Junior School Captain, Peer Supporter and Year 12 representative on the School Council. “During my time as manager, graphic designer and sponsorship coordinator, my F1 in Schools team was declared State Champions and National Finalists in what is considered the largest STEM competition in the world,” said Bria.

Joseph is an active member of the State High community and an enthusiastic sportsman, looking forward to representing the First XI cricket team for his third season. Joseph has also been involved in cricket coaching, peer supporting, German Exchange, Junior School Leadership Program and Sony Camp.

Joanne has been a Junior School Captain, Peer Supporter, UQ Science Ambassador, Debating and Football Coach, Changemakeher Ambassador and a Brisbane City Cluster mentor.

Advaith is also passionate about debating, as well as cricket and tennis, exploring other opportunities such as Peer Support, EALD mentoring, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and had an amazing experience on the Cambodia Trip. “I can’t wait to see what the Seniors of 2019 accomplish, and I’m keen to support State High in many endeavours this year.”
