School Captain of St Laurence’s College Harry Kidd, inspired by the College’s rich history and proud tradition, strives to lead his fellow students to leave a legacy of which they too can be proud.

“From my first address as School Captain, I have encouraged my peers to do what I challenge myself to do every day — to be the best person I can be,” said Harry. “In doing so, I encourage students to embody a culture we can all be proud of; one that promotes a community of goodness before greatness, of humanity before hostility, and is a place of dignity and respect.”

Harry is a hardworking and dedicated student, achieving outstanding results in academic and cultural studies. For more than two years, Harry has received Dux of subjects English, Drama and Media, and has received a number of Gold Academic Awards.

As a keen musician and actor, Harry is involved in a variety of orchestras and ensembles. The College’s annual LIZID Music Festival provides a platform for students to showcase their creative talents. It was this festival which inspired Harry to continue his studies in music. “As a new student of only 13, I was immediately impressed and inspired by the senior musicians [at LIZID]. All these years later, taking to the stage for the last time as a senior and the School Captain, I hope to inspire boys starting out at Lauries in the same way I was.”
